### How you convert 36watts in joules?

Watts is a unit of power; Joules is a unit of energy. Watts
means Joules/second, so you would need to know how long a machine
that uses 36 watts (for example, certain light-bulbs) is
used.
36 watts is simply 36 Joules per second; this is the same as 2160
Joules per minute, or 129,600 Joules per hour.
Since the electricity bill is measured in kWh instead of Joule (1
kWh = 3,600,000 Ws = 3,600,000 Joule), you might also say that a
device that uses 36 watts uses 0.036 kWh every hour.

###### Asked in Metric System

### How many metric units are in 661kWh?

A kilowatt hour is a metric unit, although it is a slightly
confused one. A watt is one joule per second. This means that 1 kWh
is 1000 joules multiplied by 360 seconds (1 hour) per second. So 1
kWh is 360 kilojoules.
661 kWh is 661 times 360 kilojoules, which is 237960 kilojoules, or
237.96 megajoules.
