How to Convert Kilowatts to Kilocalories Per Hour

To convert a kilowatt measurement to a kilocalorie per hour measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One kilowatt is equal to 860.420815 kilocalories per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilocalories per hour = kilowatts × 860.420815

The power in kilocalories per hour is equal to the kilowatts multiplied by 860.420815.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilowatts to kilocalories per hour using the formula above.
5 kW = (5 × 860.420815) = 4,302.104073 kcal/h

Kilowatts and kilocalories per hour are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.

Kilocalories Per Hour

One kilocalorie per hour is equal to one kilocalorie, or 1,000 times the energy needed to heat one gram of water 1 °C, for one hour.

Kilocalories per hour can be abbreviated as kcal/h, for example 1 kilocalorie per hour can be written as 1 kcal/h.
