What you should know about kiloCalories and kiloJoules
How many kiloJoules are in one kiloCalorie?
1 kcalth = 4.184 kJ
1 kcalIT = 4.1868 kJ
1 kcal15 = 4.1855 kJ
1 kcal20 = 4.182 kJ
How many kiloCalories are in one kiloJoule?
1 kJ = 0.23900573614 kcalth
1 kJ = 0.23884589663 kcalIT
1 kJ = 0.23892008123 kcal15
1 kJ =0.23912003826 kcal20
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 kJ

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.
