#### Kj to kcal and kcal to kj converter

I show you how to convert kJ to kcal and kcal to kJ using the Microsoft Excel application.

## Method 1. Convert using simple division

4.184 is the crucial number here. To convert kJ to kcal, you need to just divide by 4.184. Similarly, to convert kcal to kJ, you need to multiply by 4.184.

## Method 2. Conversion using CONVERT Excel function

The CONVERT function automatically converts the value based on the specified input and output units, which eliminates the need for a separate conversion factor or formula. This method is more efficient and less prone to errors, as the conversion is handled by the built-in function in Excel.

=CONVERT(cell,”unit1″,”unit2″)

## Method 3. Convert using VBA code

This VBA code will ask you how many kJ you want to convert to kcal:

```Function ConvertKJToKcal(kj As Double) As Double ConvertKJToKcal = kj * 0.239006 End Function Sub ConvertKJToKcalMain() Dim kj As Double Dim kcal As Double kj = InputBox("Enter the number of kilojoules (kJ) to convert to kilocalories (kcal):") If IsNumeric(kj) Then kcal = ConvertKJToKcal(kj) MsgBox kj & " kilojoules (kJ) is equal to " & kcal & " kilocalories (kcal)", vbInformation, "Kilojoules to Kilocalories Conversion" Else MsgBox "Invalid input! Please enter a valid number.", vbExclamation, "Error" End If End Sub```

The custom functions in the Visual Basic module handle the conversion by applying the appropriate formula, which makes the conversion process easier and more efficient. This method also allows you to modify the conversion formulas if needed, by simply editing the code in the module.
