## Welcome to the Kilocalories to Joules Calculator

The Kilocalories to Joules Calculator is a tool to convert energy measurements from kilocalories (kcal) to joules (J). It's useful for understanding energy values in different units.

The conversion formula is as follows:

- Thermochemical / Food Kilocalories to Joules:
**1 kcal-th = 4184 J** - International Kilocalories to Joules:
**1 kcal-IT = 4186.8 J** - 15°C Kilocalories to Joules:
**1 kcal15 = 4185.5 J** - 20°C Kilocalories to Joules:
**1 kcal20 = 4182 J**

### Result:

Energy (kcal) | Unit Type | Energy (Joules) |
---|---|---|
