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: Foot pound

In physics, a foot-pound force (symbol ft·lbf or ft·lbf), usually abbreviated to foot-pound, is an Imperial and U.S. customary unit of mechanical work, or energy, although in scientific fields one commonly uses the equivalent metric unit of the joule (J). There are approximately 1.356 J/ft·lbf, or exactly 1.355 817 948 331 400 4 J/ft·lbf.
