## Energy UnitsPerform each of the following conversions:1456 cal to Calories450 cal to joules20 kWh to calories84 quad to joules

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Each of the given conversions are to be performed.

Concept introduction:

Unit conversion is a multiple-step process used to convert the unit of measurement of a given quantity. It is determined by multiplication with a conversion factor.

A fraction in which the numerator and the denominator are the same quantities but are determined in different units is known as a conversion factor.

### Explanation of Solution

a) 1456 cal to Calories

The conversion of cal into Calories is as follows:

1 Cal (Calorie)= 1000 cal

E= (given cal×1 Cal1000 cal)= (1456 cal×1 Cal1000 cal)=(1456 Cal1000)=1.456 Cal

Therefore, the result of the conversion is 1.456 Cal.

b) 450 cal to joules

The conversion of cal into joules is as follows:

1 gram calorie=4.18 joule

E= (given cal×4.18 J1 cal)(450 cal×4.18 J1 cal)=1.88×103 J

Therefore, the result of the conversion of 450 cal to joules is 1.88×103 J.

c) 20 kWh to calories

The conversion of kWh into calories is as follows:

1 Kilowatt hour=3.6×106 joule

E= given kWh×(3.6×106 J1 kWh)= (20 kWh)×(3
