What is kilojoule?

The kilojoule is a unit of energy or work equal to 1,000 joules (1 kJ = 1,000 J), the SI derived unit of energy. It is also equal to 1012 nanojoules (nJ), or 109 microjoules (μJ), or 106 millijoules (mJ), or 0.001 megajoules (MJ), or 10-6 gigajoules (GJ) or 10-9 terajoules (TJ).

One kilojoule is equal to one thousand joules. The joule is the energy consumed or work done when a force of one newton acts to move an object through a distance of one meter or the energy required to produce one watt of power for one second (1 J = 1 N⋅m = 1 W⋅s = 1 kg⋅m2/s2).

Note:
The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
