### FAQ about BTU to kcal Conversion

1 btu (international) (BTU) is equal to 0.252 kilocalorie (international) (kcal).

1BTU = 0.252kcal

The Energy E in kilocalorie (international) (kcal) is equal to the Energy E in btu (BTU) times 0.252, that conversion formula:

E(kcal) = E(BTU) × 0.252

One BTU (international) is equal to 0.252 Kilocalorie (international):

1BTU = 1BTU × 0.252 = 0.252kcal

One Kilocalorie (international) is equal to 3.96832 BTU:

1kcal = 1kcal × 3.96832 = 3.96832BTU

E(kcal) = 5(BTU) × 0.252 = 1.26kcal
