## How to convert kilowatt hours to joules (kWh to J)

The formula for converting kilowatt hours to joules is: J = kWh × 3600000. To calculate the kilowatt hour value in joules first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt hour in joules we follow these steps:

J = kWh × 3600000

J = 1 × 3600000

J = 3600000

In other words, 1 kilowatt hour is equal to 3600000 joules.

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: J = kWh × 3600000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for kWh so the formula becomes: J = 5 × 3600000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 3600000 = 18000000 J

In summary, 5 kilowatt hours is equal to 18000000 joules.

## Converting joules to kilowatt hours

In order to convert the other way around i.e. joules to kilowatt hours, you would use the following formula: kWh = J × 0.00000027777777777778. To convert joules to kilowatt hours first substitute the joule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 joule in kilowatt hours we follow these steps:

kWh = J × 0.00000027777777777778

kWh = 1 × 0.00000027777777777778

kWh = 0.00000027777777777778

Or in other words, 1 joule is equal to 0.00000027777777777778 kilowatt hours.
