# Joules to Kilojoules conversion

Joules to kilojoules conversion is the process of converting energy values from joules (J) to kilojoules (kJ). To convert joules to kilojoules, you need to divide the value in joules by 1000.

## What is Joules to Kilojoules conversion

To convert joules (J) to kilojoules (kJ), you need to divide the value in joules by 1,000.

This is because there are 1,000 joules in a kilojoule.

For example, let's convert 5,000 joules to kilojoules:

kJ = 5,000 J / 1,000 kJ = 5 kJ

Therefore, 5,000 joules is equal to 5 kilojoules.

## How to convert joules to kilojoules

One joule is equal to thousandth of a kilojoule:

1J = 0.001kJ

The energy in kilojoules *E*_{(kJ) }is equal to the energy in joules *E*_{(J)} divided by 1000:

*E*_{(kJ)} = *E*_{(J)} / 1000

### Example

Convert 500 joules to kilojoules.

The energy E in kilojoules (kJ) is equal to 500 joules (J) divided by 1000:

*E*_{(kJ)} = 500J / 1000 = 0.5kJ
