Kilocalories to Megawatt-hours Conversion
Enter the energy in kilocalories below to get the value converted to megawatt-hours.
How to Convert Kilocalories to Megawatt-hours
To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a megawatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie is equal to 1.1622E-6 megawatt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 1.1622E-6.
Kilocalories and megawatt-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 megawatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one megawatt, or 1,000,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Megawatt-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.
Megawatt-hours are usually abbreviated as MWh, although the formally adopted expression is MW·h. The abbreviation MW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 MWh, 1 MW·h, or 1 MW 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.
