What is kilocalorie per day?

The kilocalorie (thermochemical) per day (or kilocalorie per day) is a unit of power equal to 0.0484259259 watts (1 kcal/day = 0.0484259259 W), the derived unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 4.84259259x10-5 kilowatts (kW), or 4.84259259x10-8 megawatts (MW), or 4.84259259x10-11 gigawatts (GW), or 0.165236118 British thermal units (IT) per hour (BTU/h), or 0.0416666667 kilocalories (thermochemical) per hour (kcal/h) or 6.584093569x10-5 horsepower (metric) (hp).

The kilocalorie per day definition varies as follows:

  • The kilocalorie (thermochemical) per day (kcal/day) is equal to 4.84259259x10-5 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (IT) per day (kcal/day) is equal to 4.84583333x10-5 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (mean) per day (kcal/day) is equal to about 4.84956019x10-5 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (4 °C) per day (kcal/day) is equal to about 4.86631944x10-5 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (15 °C) per day (kcal/day) is equal to 4.8443287x10-5 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (20 °C) per day (kcal/day) is equal to about 4.84016204x10-5 kilowatts (kW)

The kilocalorie per day (kcal/day) is a unit of power. The kilocalorie (thermochemical) (kcal) is a unit of energy while the day is a unit of time.
