1 kJ - 1000 J Conversion: 338.25 J x 1kJ/1000J = 0.33825 kJ International System of Units (SI Units) are organized body of measurements for physical quantity. They are set to be the norm or global norm scaling for every physical quantity which includes kilogram, meter, second, ampere, kelvin, candela and mole.
