## What is calorie per second?

The **calorie (thermochemical) per second** (or **calorie per second**) is a unit of power equal to 4.184 watts (1 cal/s = 4.184 W), the derived unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 0.004184 kilowatts (kW), or 4.184x10-6 megawatts (MW), or 4.184x10-9 gigawatts (GW), or 14.2764006 British thermal units (IT) per hour (BTU/h), or 3.6 kilocalories (thermochemical) per hour (kcal/h) or 0.0056886568 horsepower (metric) (hp).

The **calorie per second definition** varies as follows:

- The calorie (thermochemical) per second (cal/s) is equal to 4.184 watts (W)
- The calorie (IT) per second (cal/s) is equal to 4.1868 watts (W)
- The calorie (mean) per second (cal/s) is equal to about 4.19002 watts (W)
- The calorie (4 °C) per second (cal/s) is equal to about 4.2045 watts (W)
- The calorie (15 °C) per second (cal/s) is equal to 4.1855 watts (W)
- The calorie (20 °C) per second (cal/s) is equal to about 4.1819 watts (W)

The calorie per second (cal/s) is a unit of power. The calorie (thermochemical) (cal) is a unit of energy while the second (s) is a unit of time.

*Notes:*

(i) The IT is an abbreviation for the International [Steam] Table

(ii) The food calorie - used in nutritional contexts only - is equal to 4.184 kilojoules or 1,000 thermochemical calories. The food calorie is also referred to as kilocalorie on the nutrition labels.
