A joule (symbol J) was a unit of energy. An explosion of 4.184 gigajoules was the equivalent amount of energy to that released by one metric ton explosion.

As a measurement of power, one joule per second was equal to one watt.

Comparative list of energies Edit

Microjoule = 0.000,001 joules
Millijoule = 0.001 joules
Kilojoule = 1 thousand joules
Megajoule = 1 million joules
This implies the full energy reserves of the Magellan were about 29.4 megajoules.
Gigajoule = 1 billion joules
Exajoule = 1 quintillion joules
