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

The formula for converting megajoules to kilowatt hours is: kWh = MJ × 0.27777777777778. To calculate the megajoule value in kilowatt hours first substitute the megajoule value into the preceding formula, and then perform 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

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

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: kWh = MJ × 0.27777777777778
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for MJ so the formula becomes: kWh = 9 × 0.27777777777778
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 0.27777777777778 = 2.50000000000002 kWh

In summary, 9 megajoules is equal to 2.50000000000002 kilowatt hours.

## Converting kilowatt hours to megajoules

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilowatt hours to megajoules, you would use the following formula: MJ = kWh × 3.6. To convert kilowatt hours to megajoules first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the above formula, and then execute 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

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