## Joules from Calories Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Joules from Calories.

E(J) = E(kcal) * 4184

Variables:

- Where E(J) is the Joules from Calories (Joules)
- E(kcal) is the total number of calories (kcal)

To calculate joules from calories, multiply the kilo-calories by 4184.

## How to Calculate Joules from Calories?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the Joules from Calories.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total number of calories (kcal). In this example, the total number of calories (kcal) is measured to be 4.
- Finally, calculate the Joules from Calories using the formula above:

E(J) = E(kcal) * 4184

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

E(J) = 4 * 4184 = 16736 (Joules)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the needed variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are provide as:

total number of calories (kcal) = 69

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us:

**E(J) = 69 * 4184 = 288696 **(Joules)
