How to Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Megawatts

To convert a kilocalorie per hour measurement to a megawatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie per hour is equal to 1.1622E-6 megawatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = kilocalories per hour × 1.1622E-6

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories per hour to megawatts using the formula above.
5 kcal/h = (5 × 1.1622E-6) = 5.8111E-6 MW

Kilocalories per hour and megawatts 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.

Megawatts

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 109. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
