What is Not a Unit of Energy?
Horse Power is a unit of Power. Some misinterpret it as a unit of Energy. When discussing words like energy, time, work, or any other physical quantity that requires a standard measure to differentiate it, such as those encountered in physics, it becomes challenging to describe them. The units determine the standard measure of these quantities in physics. The units used to describe these physical quantities are kilogram (kg) and kilometers (km). Kelvin for temperature is another illustration, etc.
The SI unit of energy is the joule (J), which bears the name of James Prescott Joule and his studies on the mechanical equivalent of heat because energy is defined in terms of work.
Energy is measured in the same units as work (As work and energy are the two sides of the same coin).
