#### Foe

An enemy or opponent
His work was praised by friends and foes alike

#### Joule

The joule ( jowl, jool; symbol: J) is a derived unit of energy in the International System of Units. It is equal to the energy transferred to (or work done on) an object when a force of one newton acts on that object in the direction of the force's motion through a distance of one metre (1 newton-metre or N⋅m).

#### Joule

The International System unit of electrical, mechanical, and thermal energy, equal to the work done when a force of one newton acts through a distance of one meter, and also equal to the work done when a current of one ampere is passed through a resistance of one ohm for one second.

#### Joule

A unit of work which is equal to 107 ergs (the unit of work in the C. G. S. system of units), and is equivalent to one watt-second, the energy expended in one second by an electric current of one ampere in a resistance of one ohm; also called the absolute joule. It is abbreviated J or j. The international joule is slightly larger, being 1.000167 times the absolute joule. The absolute joule is approximately equal to 0.737562 foot pounds, 0.239006 gram-calories (small calories), and 3.72506 x 10-7 horsepower-hours, and 0.000948451 B.t.u.
