Enter the energy in kilocalories below to get the value converted to kilowatt-hours.
How to Convert Kilocalories to Kilowatt-hours
To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a kilowatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.
Since one kilocalorie is equal to 0.001162 kilowatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in kilowatt-hours is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 0.001162.
Kilocalories and kilowatt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one kilowatt, or 1,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Kilowatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.
Kilowatt-hours are usually abbreviated as kWh, although the formally adopted expression is kW·h. The abbreviation kW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh, 1 kW·h, or 1 kW h.
In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.
