## 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.

### How Many Megajoules Are in a Megacalorie?

There are **4.184** megajoules in a megacalorie, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Mcal = 4.184 MJ

## What Is a Megajoule?

One megajoule is equal to 1,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 10^{6}. Megajoules can be abbreviated as *MJ*; for example, 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.
