**Conversion Example:**

If we want to convert 0.5 kiloCalories in Joules, then we will proceed as following:

**Thermochemical Kilocalories to Joules**

*E*_{(J)} = 4184 × *E*_{(kcal-th)} = 4184 × 0.5 = 2092 J

**International Kilocalories to Joules**

*E*_{(J)} = 4186.8 × *E*_{(kcal-IT)} = 4186.8 × 0.5 = 2093.4 J

**15ºC Kilocalories to Joules**

*E*_{(J)} = 4185.5 × *E*_{(kcal15)} = 4185.5 × 0.5 = 2092.75 J

**20ºC Kilocalories to Joules**

*E*_{(J)} = / 4182 × *E*_{(kcal20)} = 4182 × 0.5 = 2091 J

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

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.
