## How to Convert Megacalories to Kilowatt-Hours

To convert a measurement in megacalories to a measurement in kilowatt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1.162222 kilowatt-hours/megacalorie.

Since one megacalorie is equal to 1.162222 kilowatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatt-hours = megacalories × 1.162222

The energy in kilowatt-hours is equal to the energy in megacalories multiplied by 1.162222.

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

### How Many Kilowatt-Hours Are in a Megacalorie?

There are **1.162222** kilowatt-hours in a megacalorie, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Mcal = 1.162222 kWh

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

## 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.

## 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]}
