How to Convert Kilojoules to Gigajoules

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a gigajoule measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio. One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000 kilojoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = kilojoules ÷ 1,000,000

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the kilojoules divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 kilojoules to gigajoules using the formula above.
5,000,000 kJ = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 GJ

Kilojoules and gigajoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilojoules

One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The kilojoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as kJ, for example 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.

Gigajoules

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
