Conversion Formula

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

X kilocalories * cf = Y kilojoules

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

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 705 kilocalories and want to express it in kilojoules.
705 kcal = (705 × 4.184) kJ
705 kcal = 2949.72 kJ

Conversion factor

1 kilocalorie is equal to 4.184 kilojoule
(1 kcal = 4.184 kJ )
