Convert Newton Meter to Kilojoule

Please provide values below to convert newton meter [N*m] to kilojoule [kJ], or vice versa.

From: newton meter
To: kilojoule
     

Newton-meter

Definition: The newton-meter (N·m) is sometimes used as a unit of work or energy and in this context is equal to the joule, the SI unit of energy. In this use, it is defined as the energy transferred to an object by a one newton force acting on that object in the direction of its motion over a distance of one meter.

History/origin: The use of the newton-meter as a unit of work or energy is derived from the fact that the joule, the SI (International System of Units) unit of energy, is dimensionally equivalent to the newton-meter.

Current use: The newton-meter is more commonly used as a unit of torque rather than as a unit of work or energy. As such, the use of the newton-meter as a unit of work or energy is discouraged to avoid confusion regarding whether energy or torque is being expressed.

Kilojoule

Definition: The kilojoule is an SI (International System of Units) derived unit of energy that is equal to 1000 joules. The joule is defined as the amount of energy transferred to an object when a one newton force acts on an object in the direction movement through a distance of one meter.

History/origin: The kilojoule, like other SI derived units, uses SI prefixes to denote multiples or submultiples of the given unit. In this case, the prefix "kilo" is used to express a multiple of 1000.

Current use: In countries that have adopted SI, the kilojoule is widely used as a unit of food energy. In some cases, both kilojoules and kilocalories are displayed, though in countries such as the United States, only kilocalories are shown (often referred to as "Calories") on food labels. Aside from this everyday use, kilojoules are used within scientific contexts around the world.

How to Convert Newton Meter to Kilojoule

1 N*m = 0.001 kJ
1 kJ = 1000 N*m

Example: convert 15 N*m to kJ:
15 N*m = 15 × 0.001 kJ = 0.015 kJ
