How to Convert Kilocalories per Hour to Megawatts

To convert a measurement in kilocalories per hour to a measurement in megawatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 1.1622E-6 megawatts/kilocalorie per hour.

Since one kilocalorie per hour is equal to 1.1622E-6 megawatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = kilocalories per hour × 1.1622E-6

The power in megawatts is equal to the power in kilocalories per hour multiplied by 1.1622E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 kilocalories per hour to megawatts using the formula above.
megawatts = (500,000 kcal/h × 1.1622E-6) = 0.581111 MW

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

What Are 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.

In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.

What Is a Megawatt?

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

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
