The converter and the tables are based on nutritional calorie, also know as kilocalorie (kcal).
The calories to kilojoules converter and conversion table provide a simple and efficient way to convert calories to kilojoules. It works by taking the input value in calories and applying the conversion factor of 4.184 kJ per calorie. The converter calculates the equivalent energy in kilojoules and displays the result.
In addition to the converter, the calories to kilojoules conversion table can be a helpful resource. This table lists a range of common calorie values alongside their corresponding kilojoule equivalents for a quick reference.
Below, you will find information on how to determine the equivalent value of kilojoules in a calorie and how to accurately convert calories to kilojoules and vice versa.
How to convert calories to kilojoules?
1 Calorie (Cal) is equal to 4.184 kilojoules (kJ). To convert calories to kilojoules, multiply the calorie value by 4.184.
For example, to convert 100 calories to kJ, you can use the following formula:
kJ = Cal * 4.184
Simply multiply 100 by 4.184:
kJ = 100 * 4.184 = 418.4 kJ
Therefore, 100 calories equal to 418.4 kJ.
Using the simple formula below, you can easily convert calories to kilojoules.
calorie to kilojoules conversion formula:
kilojoules = calorie * 4.184
How to convert kilojoules to calories?
1 Kilojoule (kJ) is equal to 0.239005736 calories. To convert kilojoules to calories, multiply the kilojoule value by 0.239005736 or divide by 4.184.
For example, to convert 1000 kJ to calories, you can use the following formula:
Cal = kJ / 4.184
Simply divide 1000 by 4.184:
Cal = 1000 / 4.184 = 239 calories
Therefore, 1000 kilojoules equal to 239 calories.
Using the simple formula below, you can easily convert kilojoules to calories.
kilojoules to calories conversion formula:
calorie = kilojoule * 0.239005736
calorie = kilojoule * 4.184
What is Nutritional vs Small (Scientific) Calorie?
Nutritional (food) Calorie is an energy unit and defined as the amount of energy to heat 1 kilogram of water to 1 degree Celsius. It is 1000 times higher than the scientific (small) calorie unit. Also known as kilocalorie (kcal). 1 Nutritional calorie (kilocalorie) = 4.184 kilojoules. The symbol is "Cal or kcal".
Small Calorie is a metric energy unit and defined as the amount of energy to heat 1 gram of water to 1 degree Celsius. 1 Small (gram) calorie = 0.004184 kilojoules. The symbol is "cal".
