If we want to convert 200 calories in kiloJoules, then we will proceed as following:
Thermochemical Calories to Kilojoules
E(kJ) = E(calth) / 239.0057 = 200calth / 239.0057 = 0.8368 kJ
15ºC Calories to Kilojoules
E(kJ) = E(cal15) / 238.9201 = 200cal15 / 238.9201 = 0.8371 kJ
Large/food Calories to Kilojoules
E(kJ) = E(Cal) / 0.239 = 200Cal / 0.239 = 836.8 kJ
