## How to convert kilojoules to kilowatt hours (kJ to kWh)

The formula for converting kilojoules to kilowatt hours is: kWh = kJ × 0.00027777777777778. To calculate the kilojoule value in kilowatt hours first substitute the kilojoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in kilowatt hours we follow these steps:

kWh = kJ × 0.00027777777777778

kWh = 1 × 0.00027777777777778

kWh = 0.00027777777777778

In other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 0.00027777777777778 kilowatt hours.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 kilojoules to kilowatt hours is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kWh = kJ × 0.00027777777777778
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for kJ so the formula becomes: kWh = 5 × 0.00027777777777778
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 0.00027777777777778 = 0.0013888888888889 kWh

In summary, 5 kilojoules is equal to 0.0013888888888889 kilowatt hours.

## Converting kilowatt hours to kilojoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilowatt hours to kilojoules, you would use the following formula: kJ = kWh × 3600. To convert kilowatt hours to kilojoules first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt hour in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = kWh × 3600

kJ = 1 × 3600

kJ = 3600

Or in other words, 1 kilowatt hour is equal to 3600 kilojoules.
