Conversion Formula

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

X kilocalories * cf = Y terajoules

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

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 491 kilocalories and want to express it in terajoules.
491 kcal = (491 × 4.184E-9) TJ
491 kcal = 2.054344E-6 TJ

Conversion factor

1 kilocalorie is equal to 4.184E-9 terajoule
(1 kcal = 4.184E-9 TJ )
