How to convert watt seconds to calories (Ws to cal)
The formula for converting watt seconds to calories is: cal = Ws × 0.2390057361. To calculate the watt second value in calories first substitute the watt second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt second in calories we follow these steps:
cal = Ws × 0.2390057361
cal = 1 × 0.2390057361
cal = 0.2390057361
In other words, 1 watt second is equal to 0.2390057361 calories.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 watt seconds to calories is:
- Understand the conversion formula: cal = Ws × 0.2390057361
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for Ws so the formula becomes: cal = 4 × 0.2390057361
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 0.2390057361 = 0.9560229444 cal
In summary, 4 watt seconds is equal to 0.9560229444 calories.
Converting calories to watt seconds
In order to convert the other way around i.e. calories to watt seconds, you would use the following formula: Ws = cal × 4.1868. To convert calories to watt seconds first substitute the calorie value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 calorie in watt seconds we follow these steps:
Ws = cal × 4.1868
Ws = 1 × 4.1868
Ws = 4.1868
Or in other words, 1 calorie is equal to 4.1868 watt seconds.
