## How to Convert Megacalories to Calories

To convert a megacalorie measurement to a calorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in calories is equal to the megacalories multiplied by 1,000,000.

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

Megacalories and calories 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.

## Calories

One calorie is equal to the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius.

When measuring the energy content in foods, the large calorie, or kilocalorie is used, but it's often still just called a "calorie." When both the calorie and large calorie are used in the same context it is common to refer to the calorie as a "small calorie."

Calories can be abbreviated as *cal*, for example 1 calorie can be written as 1 cal.
