How to Convert Megacalories to Megajoules

To convert a measurement in megacalories to a measurement in megajoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 4.184 megajoules/megacalorie.

Since one megacalorie is equal to 4.184 megajoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megajoules = megacalories × 4.184

The energy in megajoules is equal to the energy in megacalories multiplied by 4.184.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megacalories to megajoules using the formula above.
megajoules = (5 Mcal × 4.184) = 20.92 MJ

How Many Megajoules Are in a Megacalorie?
