## How to convert kilowatt hours to kilocalories (kWh to kcal)

The formula for converting kilowatt hours to kilocalories is: kcal = kWh × 859.84522785899. To calculate the kilowatt hour value in kilocalories first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt hour in kilocalories we follow these steps:

kcal = kWh × 859.84522785899

kcal = 1 × 859.84522785899

kcal = 859.84522785899

In other words, 1 kilowatt hour is equal to 859.84522785899 kilocalories.

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: kcal = kWh × 859.84522785899
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for kWh so the formula becomes: kcal = 5 × 859.84522785899
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 859.84522785899 = 4299.22613929495 kcal

In summary, 5 kilowatt hours is equal to 4299.22613929495 kilocalories.

## Converting kilocalories to kilowatt hours

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilocalories to kilowatt hours, you would use the following formula: kWh = kcal × 0.0011622222. To convert kilocalories to kilowatt hours first substitute the kilocalorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilocalorie in kilowatt hours we follow these steps:

kWh = kcal × 0.0011622222

kWh = 1 × 0.0011622222

kWh = 0.0011622222

Or in other words, 1 kilocalorie is equal to 0.0011622222 kilowatt hours.
