How to Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Kilowatts

To convert a kilocalorie per hour measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie per hour is equal to 0.001162 kilowatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatts = kilocalories per hour × 0.001162

The power in kilowatts is equal to the kilocalories per hour multiplied by 0.001162.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories per hour to kilowatts using the formula above.
5 kcal/h = (5 × 0.001162) = 0.005811 kW

Kilocalories per hour and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilocalories Per Hour

One kilocalorie per hour is equal to one kilocalorie, or 1,000 times the energy needed to heat one gram of water 1 °C, for one hour.

Kilocalories per hour can be abbreviated as kcal/h, for example 1 kilocalorie per hour can be written as 1 kcal/h.

Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
