Convert KLY to KiloJoules

July 8, 2019

Q. Hi, Is there a method or converting formula for changing Kilo-Langley to Kilo-Joule? I need to know what 220 Kilo-Langley is in Kilo-Joules.

A. Hi Donal. Why? 99.99% of our readers are about be bored to death by my answer but might have been fascinated to hear about what you are doing :-)

Kilo-Langley is energy density per square meter not total energy, so conversion isn't possible. A Langley is 41840 J/m2 (joules per square metre), so a Kilo-Langley would be 41840 Kilo-Joules per square meter, meaning a one square meter area at 220 Kilo-Langley energy density would equal 9,204,800 Kilo-Joules or 2556 kilowatt-hours.
