The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.

So 1 kilojoule = 103 joules.

The definition of a joule is as follows:

The joule (symbol J, also called newton meter, watt second, or coulomb volt) is the SI unit of energy and work. The unit is pronounced to rhyme with "tool", and is named in honor of the physicist James Prescott Joule (1818-1889).

›› Definition: Btu

The British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) is a non-metric unit of energy, used in the United States and, to a lesser extent, the UK (where it isgenerally only used for heating systems). The SI unit is the joule (J), which is used by most other countries.
