## How to convert kilowatt hours to megajoules (kWh to MJ)

The formula for converting kilowatt hours to megajoules is: MJ = kWh × 3.6. To calculate the kilowatt hour value in megajoules first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt hour in megajoules we follow these steps:

MJ = kWh × 3.6

MJ = 1 × 3.6

MJ = 3.6

In other words, 1 kilowatt hour is equal to 3.6 megajoules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 kilowatt hours to megajoules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: MJ = kWh × 3.6
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for kWh so the formula becomes: MJ = 6 × 3.6
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 3.6 = 21.6 MJ

In summary, 6 kilowatt hours is equal to 21.6 megajoules.

## Converting megajoules to kilowatt hours

In order to convert the other way around i.e. megajoules to kilowatt hours, you would use the following formula: kWh = MJ × 0.27777777777778. To convert megajoules to kilowatt hours first substitute the megajoule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megajoule in kilowatt hours we follow these steps:

kWh = MJ × 0.27777777777778

kWh = 1 × 0.27777777777778

kWh = 0.27777777777778

Or in other words, 1 megajoule is equal to 0.27777777777778 kilowatt hours.
