How to Convert Kilocalories to Watt-hours

To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a watt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie is equal to 1.162222 watt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:

watt-hours = kilocalories × 1.162222

The energy in watt-hours is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 1.162222.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories to watt-hours using the formula above.
5 kcal = (5 × 1.162222) = 5.811111 Wh

Kilocalories and watt-hours 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.

Watt-hours

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

Watt-hours can be abbreviated as Wh, for example 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh.
