Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Is it possible to convert langleys to watts per meter 2? I have several measures of solar energy from different sources and would like to compare them if poosible.

Thanks.

According to NIST guide to SI units, one langley equals to 4.184E+04 joules per square meter.

Joule itself is watt * hour. So langleys can be converted to watt*hour per square meter, not just watts per square meter.

Check that publication again, in the W section all the way at the bottom. A Joule is Watt * sec. So there is a factor of 3600 between the two.
