Developing Compatible Metrics for Distinctive Forms of Energy

Authors: Julian R Silverman

The development of practical metrics allows for a more accurate and precise measurement and comparison of different products and processes. Clearly defining these measures not only allows for the standardized comparison of raw materials or finished products through life cycle assessments, but also important considerations regarding the sustainability of material transformations and energy consumption. Though we know there exist distinctive forms of energy, from examples such as mechanical to electrical and even dark energy, the derived unit of Joule or an equivalent unit is used to quantify phenomenon that are inherently incompatible with the Joule’s composite base units (eg. charge and kilogram). Herein we explore a set of derived units to quantify the extensive properties of energy not relating to the motion of masses and develop relations equating changes in mass, charge, and distance over time to chemical, gravitational, ionization, electrical, and magnetic energy. Using natural constants to form limits for mass and charge flow akin to the speed of light it is possible to come up with simple relations to both accurately describe these forms of energy and more precisely relate them. This may serve to not only allow for a more clear understanding of different forms of energy and work, but also serve to help those interested in quantifying and minimizing energy inputs by clearly delineating between forms of energy.
