The SI prefix "deca" represents a factor of 101, or in exponential notation, 1E1.
So 1 decajoule = 101 joules.
The definition of a joule is as follows:
The joule (symbol J, also called newton meter, watt second, or coulomb volt) is the SI unit of energy and work. The unit is pronounced to rhyme with "tool", and is named in honor of the physicist James Prescott Joule (1818-1889).
An erg is the unit of energy and mechanical work in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units, symbol "erg". Its name is derived from the Greek word meaning "work".
