Kilocalories to Watt-seconds Conversion
Enter the energy in kilocalories below to get the value converted to watt-seconds.
How to Convert Kilocalories to Watt-seconds
To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a watt-second measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.
Since one kilocalorie is equal to 4,184 watt-seconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 4,184.
How Many Watt-seconds Are in a Kilocalorie?
There are 4,184 watt-seconds in a kilocalorie, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 kcal = 4,184 Ws
Kilocalories and watt-seconds 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.
Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as Ws, although the formally adopted expression is W·s. The abbreviation W s is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.
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.
