How to Convert Kilowatt-hours to Megacalories

To convert a kilowatt-hour measurement to a megacalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilowatt-hour is equal to 0.860421 megacalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

megacalories = kilowatt-hours × 0.860421

The energy in megacalories is equal to the kilowatt-hours multiplied by 0.860421.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilowatt-hours to megacalories using the formula above.
5 kWh = (5 × 0.860421) = 4.302103 Mcal

Kilowatt-hours and megacalories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilowatt-hours

A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one kilowatt, or 1,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Kilowatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.

Kilowatt-hours can be abbreviated as kWh, for example 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh.

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.
