## How to Convert Kilojoules to Gigajoules

To convert a measurement in kilojoules to a measurement in gigajoules, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 kilojoules/gigajoule.

Since one gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000 kilojoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = kilojoules ÷ 1,000,000

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000 kilojoules to gigajoules using the formula above.

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

## What Is a Kilojoule?

One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which is 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 thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as *kJ*; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.

## What Is a Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is 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 billions, or 10^{9}. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as *GJ*; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
