## Joules to Kilocalories Calculator

**Joules to Kilocalories Calculator: ** This website allows you to convert joules into kilocalories. The calculator supports four types of kilocalories: thermochemical/food, international, 15°C, and 20°C calories.

The formulas for conversion are as follows:

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

**How to use the Joules to Kilocalories Calculator:**
