## How to convert megajoules to kilojoules (MJ to kJ)

The formula for converting megajoules to kilojoules is: kJ = MJ × 1000. To calculate the megajoule value in kilojoules first substitute the megajoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megajoule in kilojoules we follow these steps:

kJ = MJ × 1000

kJ = 1 × 1000

kJ = 1000

In other words, 1 megajoule is equal to 1000 kilojoules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 megajoules to kilojoules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kJ = MJ × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for MJ so the formula becomes: kJ = 4 × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 1000 = 4000 kJ

In summary, 4 megajoules is equal to 4000 kilojoules.

## Converting kilojoules to megajoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilojoules to megajoules, you would use the following formula: MJ = kJ × 0.001. To convert kilojoules to megajoules first substitute the kilojoule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilojoule in megajoules we follow these steps:

MJ = kJ × 0.001

MJ = 1 × 0.001

MJ = 0.001

Or in other words, 1 kilojoule is equal to 0.001 megajoules.
