How to Convert Megacalories to British Thermal Units

To convert a megacalorie measurement to a british thermal unit measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megacalorie is equal to 3,965.666831 british thermal units, so use this simple formula to convert:

british thermal units = megacalories × 3,965.666831

The energy in british thermal units is equal to the megacalories multiplied by 3,965.666831.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megacalories to british thermal units using the formula above.
5 Mcal = (5 × 3,965.666831) = 19,828.334157 BTU

Megacalories and british thermal units are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.

British Thermal Units

British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.

The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as BTU, for example 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.
