Kelvin and Joule

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Is there some kind of link between the units Kelvin/second and Joule/second? I'm thinking a value in Kelvin would represent an amount of energy, just as Joule. Or?

    Indeed, just as lightspeed is the link between time units and length units, so is Boltzman's constant the link between temperature and energy.
