Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many gigajoules are in 'X' kilocalories (X is the number of kilocalories you want to convert to gigajoules). In order to convert a value from kilocalories to gigajoules (from kcal to GJ) simply type the number of kilocalories to be converted to gigajoules and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from kilocalories to gigajoules is:

X kilocalories * cf = Y gigajoules

where
X = the specific value to be converted (in kilocalories)
cf = the conversion factor from kilocalories to gigajoules
Y = the result (in gigajoules)

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 923 kilocalories and want to express it in gigajoules.
923 kcal = (923 × 4.184E-6) GJ
923 kcal = 0.003861832 GJ

Conversion factor

1 kilocalorie is equal to 4.184E-6 gigajoule
(1 kcal = 4.184E-6 GJ )
