1N = force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one meter per second squared.
But he asked for a demonstration . . .

OK mister smarty pants; what does this equal:

Newton-meters per second squared?

And how many are now missing in Fukushima?
<<<<Guessing the rate of acceleration of a body under the pull of gravity???

Watts

4.7 GWe

nanny, nanny, boo boo!

(says the guy with 15 years of power plant experience)

Oops, divided by one too many seconds.
Watts are Joules per second or kg-meters squared per second cubed, which makes it Newton-meters per second.
So nanny nanny it's my boo boo.
My engineering physics professor would be disappointed.  He pummeled us mercilessly with derived units and units conversions.

Ok in laymans terms I still need a demonstration to understand
1vertical<<<<<dense

Edit: 22000 missing or dead in the Fukushima events
Edit again: This number is probably for all of Japan...sorry for the confusion

Wait, what? What happened? I can't find this story anywhere.

So what is a W/s, and what is it used for?

Edit: 22000 missing or dead in the Fukushima events
Is that for Japan or just Fukushima?

Do you need someone to push you?  What kind of demonstration are you looking for?  It's more confusing in English units when you start talking about lbs-force.

1 N = 1 kg m/s^2

The acceleration due to gravity is G = 9.81 m/s^2, so 1 N/G  = 1/9.81 kg, or ~102 grams, which is ~3.6 ounces.  This means 1 Newton is the force required for you to keep 3.6 ounces from falling, and ~3 Newtons might have been needed for Isaac to hold the apple that hit his head (assuming it was an average eating apple, there's a lot of slop there ).

You are right Tom I think that is for all of Japan....

Guilty

I had a friend named Julia.  Everybody called her Jules, so I called her Newton Meters.  Everyone that was nerdy, but Julia liked it.

The missing I was asking about is the lost generation capacity at the Dai-ichi facility.

4.7 GW. =  4,700,000,000 Watts

That's almost enough power for 4 flux capacitors!

Yeah, what's that in Jigawatts?
