What is kilocalorie per hour?

The kilocalorie (thermochemical) per hour (or kilocalorie per hour) is a unit of power equal to 1.16222222 watts (1 kcal/h = 1.16222222 W), the derived unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 1.16222222x10-3 kilowatts (kW), or 1.16222222x10-6 megawatts (MW), or 1.16222222x10-9 gigawatts (GW), or 3.9656668 British thermal units (IT) per hour (BTU/h), or 2.777778x10-4 kilocalories (thermochemical) per second (kcal/s) or 0.001580182 horsepower (metric) (hp).

The kilocalorie per hour definition varies as follows:

  • The kilocalorie (thermochemical) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to 0.00116222222 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (IT) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to 0.001163 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (mean) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to about 0.00116389444 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (4 °C) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to about 0.00116791667 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (15 °C) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to 0.00116263889 kilowatts (kW)
  • The kilocalorie (20 °C) per hour (kcal/h) is equal to about 0.00116163889 kilowatts (kW)

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