## How to convert kilojoules to kilocalories (kJ to kcal)

The formula for converting kilojoules to kilocalories is: kcal = kJ × 0.2388458966275. To calculate the kilojoule value in kilocalories first substitute the kilojoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in kilocalories we follow these steps:

kcal = kJ × 0.2388458966275

kcal = 1 × 0.2388458966275

kcal = 0.2388458966275

In other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 0.2388458966275 kilocalories.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 7 kilojoules to kilocalories is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kcal = kJ × 0.2388458966275
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for kJ so the formula becomes: kcal = 7 × 0.2388458966275
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 0.2388458966275 = 1.6719212763925 kcal

In summary, 7 kilojoules is equal to 1.6719212763925 kilocalories.

## Converting kilocalories to kilojoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilocalories to kilojoules, you would use the following formula: kJ = kcal × 4.1868. To convert kilocalories to kilojoules first substitute the kilocalorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilocalorie in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = kcal × 4.1868

kJ = 1 × 4.1868

kJ = 4.1868

Or in other words, 1 kilocalorie is equal to 4.1868 kilojoules.
