How to Convert Kilojoules to Megacalories

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a megacalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilojoule is equal to 0.000239 megacalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

megacalories = kilojoules × 0.000239

The energy in megacalories is equal to the kilojoules multiplied by 0.000239.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilojoules to megacalories using the formula above.
5 kJ = (5 × 0.000239) = 0.001195 Mcal

Kilojoules and megacalories 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.

Megacalories

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which are the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius. One megacalorie is equal to 4.184 megajoules.

Megacalories can be abbreviated as Mcal, for example 1 megacalorie can be written as 1 Mcal.
