## How to Convert Megacalories to Therms

To convert a measurement in megacalories to a measurement in therms, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.039657 therms/megacalorie.

Since one megacalorie is equal to 0.039657 therms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

therms = megacalories × 0.039657

The energy in therms is equal to the energy in megacalories multiplied by 0.039657.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megacalories to therms using the formula above.
therms = (5 Mcal × 0.039657) = 0.198283 therms

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