How to Convert Megajoules to Kilojoules

Convert megajoules to kilojoules with this simple formula:

kilojoules = megajoules × 1,000

Converting a megajoule energy measurement to a kilojoule measurement involves multiplying the energy by the conversion ratio to find the result. One megajoule is equal to 1,000 kilojoules, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megajoules to kilojoules using the formula above.
5 MJ = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 kJ
