## How to convert megajoules to calories (MJ to cal)

The formula for converting megajoules to calories is: cal = MJ × 238845.8966275. To calculate the megajoule value in calories first substitute the megajoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megajoule in calories we follow these steps:

cal = MJ × 238845.8966275

cal = 1 × 238845.8966275

cal = 238845.8966275

In other words, 1 megajoule is equal to 238845.8966275 calories.

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: cal = MJ × 238845.8966275
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for MJ so the formula becomes: cal = 9 × 238845.8966275
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 238845.8966275 = 2149613.0696475 cal

In summary, 9 megajoules is equal to 2149613.0696475 calories.

## Converting calories to megajoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. calories to megajoules, you would use the following formula: MJ = cal × 0.0000041868. To convert calories to megajoules first substitute the calorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 calorie in megajoules we follow these steps:

MJ = cal × 0.0000041868

MJ = 1 × 0.0000041868

MJ = 0.0000041868

Or in other words, 1 calorie is equal to 0.0000041868 megajoules.
