#### calories to joules

One calorie is equivalent to the intensity expected to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius. While estimating the energy content in food varieties, the huge calorie, or kilocalorie is utilized, yet it's generally expected still called a "calorie." When both the calorie and enormous calorie are utilized in a similar setting it is normal to allude to the calorie as a "little calorie." Calories can be curtailed as cal; for instance, 1 calorie can be composed as 1 cal.

The joule is the energy equivalent to the power on an object of one newton a ways off of one meter. One joule is equivalent to the intensity energy disseminated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of obstruction for one second.

One joule is likewise equivalent to the energy expected to move an electric charge of one coulomb through a possible contrast of one volt. Likewise, one joule is additionally equivalent to the one watt-second. The joule is the SI determined unit for energy in the decimal measuring standard. Joules can be curtailed as J; for instance, 1 joule can be composed as 1 J.

#### Little and enormous calories

Little calorie (cal) is the energy expected to increment 1 gram of water by 1°C at a strain of 1 atmosphere.

Enormous calorie (Cal) is the energy expected to increment 1 kg of water by 1°C at a strain of 1 atmosphere.

Enormous calorie is likewise called food calorie and is utilized as a unit of food energy.

#### Thermochemical calories to joules

1 calth = 4.184 J

The energy in joules E(J) is equivalent to 4.184 times the energy in thermochemical calories E(calth):

E(J) = 4.184 × E(calth)

#### Example

Convert 300 calth to joules.

E(J) = 4.184 × 300calth = 1255.2 J

15°C calories to joules

1 cal15 = 4.1855 J

The energy in joules E(J) is equivalent to 4.1855 times the energy in 15°C calories E(cal15):

E(J) = 4.1855 × E(cal15)

#### Example

Convert 300 cal15 to joules.

E(J) = 4.1855 × 300cal15 = 1255.65 J

#### Enormous/food calories to joules

1 Cal = 4.184 kJ = 4184 J

The energy in joules E(J) is equivalent to multiple times the energy in enormous/food calories E(Cal):

E(J) = 4184 × E(Cal)

#### Example

Convert 0.3 Cal to joules.

E(J) = 4184 × 0.3 Cal = 1255.2 J
