What you should know about kiloJoules and Calories
How many Calories are in one kiloJoule?
1 kJ = 239.0057 calth
1 kJ = 238.9201 cal15
1 kJ =0.239 Cal
How many kiloJoules are in one Calorie?
1 calth = 0.004184 kJ
1 cal15 = 0.0041855 kJ
1 Cal = 4.184 kJ
If we want to convert 0.7 kJ in calories, then we will proceed as following:
Kilojoules to Thermochemical Calories
E(cal) = E(kJ) × 239.0057 = 0.7 × 239.0057 = 167.3 calth
Kilojoules to 15ºC calories
E(cal15) = E(kJ) × 238.9201 = 0.7 × 238.9201 = 167.2 cal15
Kilojoules to Large/food calories
E(Cal) = E(kJ) × 0.239 = 0.7 × 0.239 = 0.1673 Cal
