## How to Convert Kilojoules to Kilocalories

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a kilocalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilojoule is equal to 0.239006 kilocalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in kilocalories is equal to the kilojoules multiplied by 0.239006.

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

Kilojoules and kilocalories 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 10^{3}. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as *kJ*, for example 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.

## 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.
