    Joule, James Prescott. On the Heat Evolved by Metallic Conductors of Electricity and in the Cells of a Battery During Electrolysis "We see, therefore, that when a current of voltaic electricity is propagated along a metallic conductor, the heat evolved in a given time is proportional to the resistance of the conductor multiplied by the square. James Prescott Joule ( – ), an English physicist, calculated in , a few decades after Rumford’s cannon experiments, the mechanical equivalent of heat in a series of experiments. In the most famous apparatus he built for this end, now called the Joule apparatus (see image below), a descending weight attached to a string caused a paddle immersed in water to rotate and heat the water.

James Prescott Joule, English physicist who established that the various forms of energy, such as electrical and heat, are basically the same and can be changed one into another.

Thus, he formed the basis of conservation of energy, the first law of thermodynamics. Learn more about Joule’s life and work. 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.
