## What you should know about Joules and kiloCalories

### How many kiloCalories are in one joule?

**Thermochemical / Food Kilocalories**

1 J = 0.00023900573614 kcal_{th}

**International kilocalories**

1 J = 0.00023884589663 kcal_{IT}

**15ºC kilocalories**

1 J = 0.00023892008123 kcal_{15}

**20ºC kilocalories**

1 J = 0.00023912003826 kcal_{20}

### How many Joules are in one kiloCalorie?

**Thermochemical / Food Kilocalories**

1 kcal_{th} = 4184 J

**International kilocalories**

1 kcal_{IT} = 4186.8 J

**15ºC kilocalories**

1 kcal_{15} = 4185.5 J

**20ºC kilocalories**

1 kcal_{20} = 4182 J

**Conversion Example:**

If we want to convert 9000J in kiloCalories, then we will proceed as following:

**Joules to Thermochemical Kilocalories**

*E _{(kcal)} = E_{(J)} / 4184 = 9000 / 4.184 = 2.1510516252 kcal_{th}*

**Joules to International Kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kcal-IT)}= E_{(J)}/ 4186.8 = 9000 / 4186.8 = 2.1496130696 kcal_{IT}**Joules to 15ºC kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kcal15)}= E_{(J)}/ 4185.5 = 9000 / 4185.5 = 2.1502807311 kcal_{15}**Joules to 20ºC kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kcal20)}= E_{(J)}/ 4182 = 9000 / 4182 = 2.1520803443 kcal_{20}Definition of **Joule** provided by Dictionary.com

the standard unit of work or energy in the International System of Units (SI), equal to the work done by a force of one newton when its point of application moves through a distance of one meter in the direction of the force: equivalent to 10 7ergs and one watt-second.

Definition of **kiloCalorie** provided by Oxford Dictionaries

A unit of energy of 1,000 calories (equal to 1 large calorie).

Definition of **kiloCalorie** provided by Vocabulary.com

a unit of heat equal to the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree at one atmosphere pressure; used by nutritionists to characterize the energy-producing potential in food

Joules and Kilocalories are two energy units. Joules and Kilocalories units are used in various fields of activity such as physics, chemistry and other industries. This calculator is useful both for those who’s working in these fields of activity but also for students who study energies as Joules and Kilocalories at school.

Our Joules to Kilocalories converter is especially designed to make your calculations fast. You just need to enter Joules value on the first box and the converter will do the rest for you and automatically convert Joules to Kilocalories.
