## How to convert kilojoules to megajoules (kJ to MJ)

The formula for converting kilojoules to megajoules is: MJ = kJ × 0.001. To calculate the kilojoule value in megajoules first substitute the kilojoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in megajoules we follow these steps:

MJ = kJ × 0.001

MJ = 1 × 0.001

MJ = 0.001

In other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 0.001 megajoules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 kilojoules to megajoules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: MJ = kJ × 0.001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for kJ so the formula becomes: MJ = 9 × 0.001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 0.001 = 0.009 MJ

In summary, 9 kilojoules is equal to 0.009 megajoules.

## Converting megajoules to kilojoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. megajoules to kilojoules, you would use the following formula: kJ = MJ × 1000. To convert megajoules to kilojoules first substitute the megajoule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megajoule in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = MJ × 1000

kJ = 1 × 1000

kJ = 1000

Or in other words, 1 megajoule is equal to 1000 kilojoules.

## Conversion Unit Definitions
