## How to Convert Kilojoules to Megajoules

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a megajoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilojoule is equal to 0.001 megajoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in megajoules is equal to the kilojoules multiplied by 0.001.

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

Kilojoules and megajoules 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.

## Megajoules

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

The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 10^{9}. Megajoules can be abbreviated as *MJ*, for example 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.
