## How to Convert Kilocalories to British Thermal Units

To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a british thermal unit measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie is equal to 3.965667 british thermal units, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in british thermal units is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 3.965667.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilocalories to british thermal units using the formula above.

Kilocalories and british thermal units are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Kilocalories

One kilocalorie, is equal to the heat needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius.

Kilocalories can be abbreviated as *kcal*, for example 1 kilocalorie can be written as 1 kcal.

When being used to measure nutrition or metabolic processes, the large calorie is used, which is equal to one kilocalorie.

## British Thermal Units

British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.

The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as *BTU*, for example 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.
