**Calorie (diet Kilocalorie)**

**Calorie (diet Kilocalorie) (Cal, kcal)**is a unit in the category of

*Energy*. It is also known as calories. Calorie (diet Kilocalorie) (Cal, kcal) has a dimension of ML

^{2}T

^{-2}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit J by multiplying its value by a factor of 4180.
