## How to Convert Gigajoules to Kilojoules

To convert a gigajoule measurement to a kilojoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.

Since one gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000 kilojoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in kilojoules is equal to the gigajoules multiplied by 1,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 gigajoules to kilojoules using the formula above.

### How Many Kilojoules are in a Gigajoule?

There are **1,000,000** kilojoules in a gigajoule, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GJ = 1,000,000 kJ

Gigajoules and kilojoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Gigajoules

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 10^{9}. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as *GJ*; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.

## Kilojoules

One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The kilojoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as *kJ*; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.
