Problem 51P

Perform each conversion.

(a) 588 cal to joules

(b) 17.4 J to Calories

(c) 134 kJ to Calories

(d) 56.2 Cal to joules

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 51P

Here, we are going to convert the unit from Cal to joule or Joule to cal.

(a)588 cal to joules

We know,

1 Cal = 4.1868 Joule

Therefore, the conversion factor = Thus,

588 cal x = 2461.8384 Joule

= 2.46 kJoule.

Therefore,

588 cal = 2.46 kJ

(b) 17.4 J to Calories

We know,

1 Cal = 4.1868 Joule

Therefore, the conversion factor = Thus,

17.4 J x = 4.156 cal

Therefore,

17.4 J = 4.156 cal

(c) 134 kJ to Calories

We know,

1 Cal = 4.1868 Joule

1 000 J = 1 kJ

Therefore, the conversion factor = , Thus,

134 kJ x x =  32005.3 cal

Therefor

134 kJ = 32005.3 calories = 32.0 kilocalories

(d) 56.2 Cal to joules

We know,

1 Cal = 4.1868 Joule

Therefore, the conversion factor = Thus,

56.2 cal x = 235.29 Joule

= 0.2353 kJ

Therefore,

56.2 cal = 0.2353 kJ

Step 2 of 3
