How to convert therms to kilocalories (thm to kcal)

The formula for converting therms to kilocalories is: kcal = thm × 25219.021687207. To calculate the therm value in kilocalories first substitute the therm value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 therm in kilocalories we follow these steps:

kcal = thm × 25219.021687207

kcal = 1 × 25219.021687207

kcal = 25219.021687207

In other words, 1 therm is equal to 25219.021687207 kilocalories.

Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 therms to kilocalories is:

  1. Understand the conversion formula: kcal = thm × 25219.021687207
  2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for thm so the formula becomes: kcal = 2 × 25219.021687207
  3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 25219.021687207 = 50438.043374414 kcal

In summary, 2 therms is equal to 50438.043374414 kilocalories.

Converting kilocalories to therms

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilocalories to therms, you would use the following formula: thm = kcal × 0.000039652608749183. To convert kilocalories to therms first substitute the kilocalorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilocalorie in therms we follow these steps:

thm = kcal × 0.000039652608749183

thm = 1 × 0.000039652608749183

thm = 0.000039652608749183

Or in other words, 1 kilocalorie is equal to 0.000039652608749183 therms.

Conversion Unit Definitions

What is a Therm?

A therm is a unit of energy typically used in the United States to measure natural gas consumption. One therm is equal to 100,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs). It is a convenient way to express the vast amounts of energy contained in natural gas.
In practical terms, a therm represents the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 100,000 BTUs of water by one degree Fahrenheit. It is often used by natural gas companies to measure and bill consumers for the amount of gas they use.
To put it in perspective, if your natural gas bill states that you've used 50 therms, it means you've consumed 5,000,000 BTUs of energy. This unit is especially useful for large-scale energy measurements and calculations, such as those used in residential and commercial heating systems.

What is a Kilocalorie?

A kilocalorie (kcal), commonly referred to as a Calorie with an uppercase "C," is a unit of energy used in the field of nutrition and dietary measurement. It represents the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius. In scientific terms, 1 kilocalorie is equal to 1,000 calories (lowercase "c"), which are the smaller units used in physics.
In the context of nutrition, the energy content of food and beverages is often measured in kilocalories. For example, if a food item contains 100 kilocalories, it means consuming that food provides the body with 100,000 calories of energy. Kilocalories are widely used on food labels and dietary recommendations to indicate the energy content of various foods and drinks.
