## How to Convert Kilowatt-Hours to Megacalories

To convert a measurement in kilowatt-hours to a measurement in megacalories, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.860421 megacalories/kilowatt-hour.

Since one kilowatt-hour is equal to 0.860421 megacalories, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megacalories = kilowatt-hours × 0.860421

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilowatt-hours to megacalories using the formula above.

### How Many Megacalories Are in a Kilowatt-Hour?

There are **0.860421** megacalories in a kilowatt-hour, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kWh = 0.860421 Mcal

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

## What Is a Kilowatt-Hour?

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 are usually abbreviated as *kWh*, although the formally adopted expression is *kW·h*. The abbreviation *kW h* is also sometimes used. For example, 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh, 1 kW·h, or 1 kW h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.^{[1]}

## What Is a Megacalorie?

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which is 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.
