How to Convert Megajoules to Megacalories

To convert a megajoule measurement to a megacalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megajoule is equal to 0.239006 megacalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

megacalories = megajoules × 0.239006

The energy in megacalories is equal to the megajoules multiplied by 0.239006.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megajoules to megacalories using the formula above.
5 MJ = (5 × 0.239006) = 1.195029 Mcal

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

Megajoules

One megajoule is equal to 1,000,000 joules, which are 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 109. Megajoules can be abbreviated as MJ, for example 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.

Megacalories

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which are 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.
