Hey y'all, I'm new here! I'm an artist and outdoorswoman who writes science-fantasy as a hobby, no intent of ever publishing, and a lot of my questions will pertain to my writing. Most of my knowledge is in biology, psychology, anthropology, and history; I'm a physics enthusiast, but certainly no expert. I have a hard enough time doing 7th grade math.

So here is the most important question I'll ever ask on this site: what are the relationships between joules, calories, volts, watts, amperes, coulombs, hertz, teslas, ohms, and electronvolts? All these different electromagnetism terms are confusing, and I can't understand the math on any of the sites I've checked. My boyfriend took an electricity class in high school, so I thought maybe he could help explain some of the terms, but nope. What do they mean?

Any help is greatly appreciated! And I apologize if this is in the wrong category.

Look to Google all the details you want are readily available.
Some of the terms you quote are obsolete but still get used a lot such as calories.
