## How to convert megacalories to calories (Mcal to cal)

The formula for converting megacalories to calories is: cal = Mcal × 1000000. To calculate the megacalorie value in calories first substitute the megacalorie value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megacalorie in calories we follow these steps:

cal = Mcal × 1000000

cal = 1 × 1000000

cal = 1000000

In other words, 1 megacalorie is equal to 1000000 calories.

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: cal = Mcal × 1000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for Mcal so the formula becomes: cal = 9 × 1000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 1000000 = 9000000 cal

In summary, 9 megacalories is equal to 9000000 calories.

## Converting calories to megacalories

In order to convert the other way around i.e. calories to megacalories, you would use the following formula: Mcal = cal × 0.000001. To convert calories to megacalories first substitute the calorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 calorie in megacalories we follow these steps:

Mcal = cal × 0.000001

M1 = cal × 0.000001

Mcal = 0.000001

Or in other words, 1 calorie is equal to 0.000001 megacalories.
