## How to convert kilojoules to joules (kJ to J)

The formula for converting kilojoules to joules is: J = kJ × 1000. To calculate the kilojoule value in joules first substitute the kilojoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in joules we follow these steps:

J = kJ × 1000

J = 1 × 1000

J = 1000

In other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 1000 joules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 kilojoules to joules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: J = kJ × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for kJ so the formula becomes: J = 6 × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 1000 = 6000 J

In summary, 6 kilojoules is equal to 6000 joules.

## Converting joules to kilojoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. joules to kilojoules, you would use the following formula: kJ = J × 0.001. To convert joules to kilojoules first substitute the joule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 joule in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = J × 0.001

k1 = J × 0.001

kJ = 0.001

Or in other words, 1 joule is equal to 0.001 kilojoules.
