Erg : Erg (short for ergon) is a measurement unit of energy and mechanical work used in physics, equal to 10−7 joules. It is defined as the amount of work done by a force of one dyne exerted for a distance of one centimeter. The unit of erg originated in the CGS (centimetre–gram–second) system of units, equal to one gram centimeter-squared per second-squared (g•cm2/s2).

Calorie : The calorie is a pre-SI metric unit of energy. Its symbol is cal, and first defined as a unit of heat by Nicolas Clément in 1824. The calorie is commonly used in the field of chemistry, and in many countries it is commonly used as a unit of food energy. There are two defined for the calorie, gram calorie (approximately equals 4.2 joules) and kilogram calorie (approximately equals 4.2 kilojoules).

FAQ about Erg to Calorie Conversion

1 erg (erg) is equal to 1/41868000 calorie (cal).

1erg = 1/41868000cal

The Energy E in calorie (cal) is equal to the Energy E in erg (erg) divided by 41868000, that conversion formula:

E(cal) = E(erg) / 41868000

1000 Erg is equal to 2.0E-5 Calorie:

1000erg = 1000erg / 41868000 = 2.0E-5cal

One Calorie is equal to 41868000 Erg:

1cal = 1cal × 41868000 = 41868000erg

E(cal) = 5000(erg) / 41868000 = 0.00012cal
