In order to convert a value from calories to kilojoules (from cal to kJ) simply type the number of calories to be converted to kilojoules and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from calories to kilojoules is:

X calories * cf = Y kilojoules

X = the specific value to be converted (in calories)
cf = the conversion factor from calories to kilojoules
Y = the result (in kilojoules)

Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 52 calories and want to express it in kilojoules.
52 cal = (52 × 0.004184) kJ
52 cal = 0.217568 kJ
