Conversion Formula

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

X kilocalories * cf = Y megajoules

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

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 775 kilocalories and want to express it in megajoules.
775 kcal = (775 × 0.004184) MJ
775 kcal = 3.2426 MJ

Conversion factor

1 kilocalorie is equal to 0.004184 megajoule
(1 kcal = 0.004184 MJ )
