How to Convert Joules to Megacalories
To convert a measurement in joules to a measurement in megacalories, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 4,184,000 joules/megacalorie.
Since one megacalorie is equal to 4,184,000 joules, you can use this simple formula to convert:
megacalories = joules ÷ 4,184,000
The energy in megacalories is equal to the energy in joules divided by 4,184,000.
Joules and megacalories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Joule?
The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter. One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.
The joule is the SI derived unit for energy in the metric system. Joules can be abbreviated as J; for example, 1 joule can be written as 1 J.
