## What is Kilojoules to kilocalories conversion

To convert kilojoules (kJ) to kilocalories (kcal), you can use the conversion factor of 0.239006.

Kilocalories = kJ * 0.239006

For example, let's convert 10 kilojoules to kilocalories:

Kilocalories = 10 kJ * 0.239006 Kilocalories ≈ 2.39006 kcal

Therefore, 10 kilojoules is approximately equal to 2.39006 kilocalories.

## How to convert from kilojoules to kcal

### Kilojoules to thermochemical / food kilocalories

1 kcalth = 4.184 kJ

The energy in kilocalories E(kcal-th) is equal to the energy in kilojoules E(kJ) divided by 4.184:

E(kcal) = E(kJ) / 4.184

### Example

Convert 5 kilojoules to kilocalories.

E(kcal) = 5 kJ / 4.184 = 1.195 kcal

### Kilojoules to international kilocalories

1 kcalIT = 4.1868 kJ

The energy in international kilocalories E(kcal-IT) is equal to the energy in kilojoules E(kJ) divided by 4.1868:

E(kcal-IT) = E(kJ) / 4.1868

### Example

Convert 5 kilojoules to kilocalories.

E(kcal-IT) = 5 kJ / 4.1868 = 1.194 kcalIT

### Kilojoules to 15°C kilocalories

1 kcal15 = 4.1855 kJ

The energy in 15°C kilocalories E(kcal15) is equal to the energy in kilojoules E(kJ) divided by 4.1855:

E(kcal15) = E(kJ) / 4.1855

### Example

Convert 5 kilojoules to kilocalories.

E(kcal15) = 5 kJ / 4.1855 = 1.195 kcal15

### Kilojoules to 20°C kilocalories

1 kcal20 = 4.182 kJ

The energy in 20°C kilocalories E(kcal20) is equal to the energy in kilojoules E(kJ) divided by 4.182:

E(kcal20) = E(kJ) / 4.182

### Example

Convert 5 kilojoules to kilocalories.

E(kcal20) = 5 kJ / 4.182 = 1.196 kcal20
