## How to convert kilojoules to calories (kJ to cal)

The formula for converting kilojoules to calories is: cal = kJ × 238.8458966275. To calculate the kilojoule value in calories first substitute the kilojoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in calories we follow these steps:

cal = kJ × 238.8458966275

cal = 1 × 238.8458966275

cal = 238.8458966275

In other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 238.8458966275 calories.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 kilojoules to calories is:

- Understand the conversion formula: cal = kJ × 238.8458966275
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for kJ so the formula becomes: cal = 3 × 238.8458966275
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 238.8458966275 = 716.5376898825 cal

In summary, 3 kilojoules is equal to 716.5376898825 calories.

## Converting calories to kilojoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. calories to kilojoules, you would use the following formula: kJ = cal × 0.0041868. To convert calories to kilojoules first substitute the calorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 calorie in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = cal × 0.0041868

kJ = 1 × 0.0041868

kJ = 0.0041868

Or in other words, 1 calorie is equal to 0.0041868 kilojoules.
