## How to Convert Joules to Megacalories

To convert a joule measurement to a megacalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One joule is equal to 2.3901E-7 megacalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in megacalories is equal to the joules multiplied by 2.3901E-7.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 joules to megacalories using the formula above.

Joules and megacalories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Joules

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.

One joule is also equal to the energy needed to move an electric charge of one coulomb through a potential difference of one volt. In addition, one joule is also equal to the one watt-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.

## Megacalories

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which are the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius. One megacalorie is equal to 4.184 megajoules.

Megacalories can be abbreviated as *Mcal*, for example 1 megacalorie can be written as 1 Mcal.
