**Conversion Example:**

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

**Kilojoules to Thermochemical Kilocalories**

*E _{(kJ)} = E_{(kcalth)} × 4.184 = 8 × 4.184 = 2.092 kJ*

**Kilojoules to International Kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kJ)}= E_{(kcalIT)}× 4.1868 = 8 × 4.1868 = 2.0934 kJ**Kilojoules to 15ºC Kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kJ)}= E_{(kcal15)}× 4.1855 = 8 × 4.1855 = 2.09275 kJ**Kilojoules to 20ºC Kilocalories**

*E*

_{(kJ)}= E_{(kcal20)}× 4.182 = 8 × 4.182 = 2.091 kJDefinition 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 **kiloJoule** provided by Cambridge Dictionary

a unit of measurement equal to 1,000 joules (= measure of energy or work done)

kiloCalories and kiloJoules are two energy units. Kilocalories and Kilojoules 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 Kilocalories and Kilojoules at school.
