    James Prescott Joule was an English physicist, mathematician, and inventor who established that the various forms of energy - mechanical, electrical, and heat - are basically the same and can be changed one into another. Thus, he formed the basis of the law of conservation of energy, the first law of thermodynamics. James Prescott Joule (Decem - Octo ), English physicist, born in Salford, near Manchester, England. Joule studied the nature of heat, and discovered its relationship to mechanical work (see energy). This led to the theory of conservation of energy (the First Law of Thermodynamics). The SI unit of work, the joule, is named.

    James Prescott Joule was born in Salford, Manchester, on the December 24th and died on the October 11th (aged 70), Sale, Cheshire, England, UK. He . Joule, James Prescott (jo͞ol, joul), –89, English scientific researches began in his youth when he invented an electromagnetic engine. Joule made valuable contributions to the fields of heat, electricity, and thermodynamics.

He laid the foundation for the theory of conservation of energy, which later influenced the First Law of Thermodynamics.

He also formulated the Joule’s law which deals with the transfer of energy. Born in Salford, Lancashire on December James Prescott Joule experimented with engines, electricity and heat throughout his life. Joule’s findings resulted in his development of the mechanical theory of heat and Joule’s law, which quantitatively describes the rate at which heat energy is produced from electric energy by the resistance in a circuit.

James Prescott Joule. James Prescott Joule FRS (/dʒuːl/; (24 December 11 October ) was an English physicist and brewer, born in Salford, Lancashire. Joule studied the nature of heat, and discovered its relationship to mechanical work (see energy).2/5(2). James Joule The great experimenter who was guided by God.

by Ann Lamont,James Prescott Joule was born at Salford, near Manchester, England, on Decem He was the second of five children born to a wealthy brewery owner. As a child, James was weak and shy, and suffered from a spinal disorder.

Early Thermodynamics. (Book Reviews: James Prescott Joule and the Concept of Energy). The joule (/ dʒ aʊ l, dʒ uː l / jawl, jool; symbol: J) is a derived unit of energy in the International System of Units. It is equal to the energy transferred to (or work done on) an object when a force of one newton acts on that object in the direction of the force's motion through a distance of one metre (1 newton metre or N⋅m).

It is also the energy dissipated as heat when an electric SI base units: kg⋅m²⋅s−2. This chapter provides an overview on the life of James Prescott Joule.

James Prescott Joule was born on 24 December in Salford. He showed an early interest in science and appears to have derived particular amusement from passing electric shocks through servants and friends and from some hazardous attempts to capture atmospheric electricity with a by: 4.

When James Prescott Joule bypassed the caloric theory and determined the mechanical equivalent of heat, it could be said that “He seized the heat from darkness and the work from isolation.” References. D.S.L. Cardwell, James Joule, A.

James Prescott Joule. – IN HIS OWN WORDS. The following excerpts are taken from J.G. Crowther, British Scientists of the 19th Century, (London, K.

Paul, Trench, Trubner & co., ltd. ), pp. Bold quotes are by James Joule, while unquoted text is that of Crowther. Reproduced verbatim, except the bold type added for clarity. joule A unit of work, energy and heat.

A watt-second. The joule is being used increasingly to replace the CALORIE in nutritional contexts. The calorie is equal to J. (James Prescott Joule, –89, English physicist). joule an SI unit of energy equal to 10 7 ergs or cals.

What school did James Joule go The unit of work is named after James Prescott Joule because it was his research that demonstrated the concept.

James Prescott Joule was an English physicist, best known for establishing the relationship between mechanical work and heat transfer. This study later led to discovery of the ‘The ‘Law of Conservation of Energy’ which states that ‘Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed; it can only be transferred from one form to another’.

James Prescott Joule (24 December – 11 October ) was an English physicist, born in Salford, near his time he had great contribution to the world of electricity and thermodynamics. He was best known for discovering Joule's law, which described electric heating by saying the amount of heat produced each second in a conductor by a current of Electricity.

Probably the most important contributor to this step forward was James Prescott Joule, son of a Manchester brewing family, who died over years ago, just as the first modern power station was coming on stream/5(2).James Prescott Joule (24 December –11 October ) was an English physicist, born in Salford, near his time he had great contribution to the world of electricity and thermodynamics.
