Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Harsh said: (Jun 25, 2011) Joule is the SI unit for energy. It is the work done by applying 1 Newton force for a distance of 1 metre.

 Ram said: (Jul 14, 2011) What is the full form of SI?

 Pratik said: (Aug 15, 2011) System of international units. SI:System Internationale.

 Narmatha said: (May 3, 2013) What is the unit of Heat?

 Yogesh said: (Jan 4, 2014) The standard unit of energy is the Joule. As a form of energy heat has the unit joule (J) in the International System of Units (SI).

 Ramesh Pudi said: (Feb 8, 2014) @Narmatha. The quantity of energy transferred as heat is a scalar expressed in an energy unit such as the joule (J) (SI).

 Umashankar Pandit said: (Jul 2, 2014) What is the unit of temperature?

 Anurag Rana said: (Jul 12, 2014) Joule, unit of work or energy in the International System of Units (SI); it is equal to the work done by a force of one newton acting through one metre. Named in honour of the English physicist James Prescott Joule, it equals 10 7 ergs, or approximately 0.7377 foot-pounds.

 Koyena Mukherjee said: (Oct 18, 2014) Heat is a form of energy. Calorie and joule are the Cgs and Si units of heat. 1 CALORIE = 4.2JOULE.

 Pratyush said: (Jul 19, 2015) Kelvin is the SI unit of temperature.

 Rama said: (Sep 25, 2015) What was unit for pressure?

 Inez Deborah Emilia Altar said: (Oct 5, 2015) Joule is an energy measure.

 Kuldeep said: (Oct 12, 2015) Atm is the S.I. Unit of pressure. It is measured by barometer. According to Boyls law as pressure of gases increased molecules come closer to each other.

 Arun Bhorge said: (Nov 3, 2015) Energy and heat both have the SI units Joule.

 Eiman said: (Jul 14, 2016) Joule is the unit of measurement as it measures energy.

 Surya said: (Dec 28, 2016) Joule is the SI unit of ENERGY.

 Irfan said: (Feb 5, 2017) @Surya. Joule is the unit of both.

 Ujjwal Khurana said: (May 27, 2017) The full form of SI is standard unit.

 Pooja said: (Jul 7, 2017) It is Newton first scientific events.

 Rahasa Chhuria said: (Jul 16, 2017) Joule is the unit of energy.

 Vaishnavi Gadas said: (Sep 1, 2018) Joule is the unit of energy.

 Amartya said: (Sep 26, 2018) No, the full form of SI is System International.

 Doji said: (May 20, 2019) D option is also correct as unit of heat is also joule.

 Ujjwal Mondal said: (Aug 9, 2019) The energy may be defined as the capacity to do work. It exists in many forms i.e., mechanical, electrical chemical, heat, light etc. But in this subject, we shall deal in mechanical energy only. UNITS OF ENERGY : energy is the capacity to do work. Since the energy of a body is measured by the work it can do, therefore the units of energy will be the same as those of the work.

 Rita said: (Jun 23, 2020) I think Option D is also correct.
