How to Convert Kilocalories to Megacalories

To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a megacalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie is equal to 0.001 megacalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

megacalories = kilocalories × 0.001

The energy in megacalories is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories to megacalories using the formula above.
5 kcal = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 Mcal

Kilocalories and megacalories 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.

Megacalories

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which are the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius. One megacalorie is equal to 4.184 megajoules.

Megacalories can be abbreviated as Mcal, for example 1 megacalorie can be written as 1 Mcal.
