    The link doesn't seem to help me. For instance, now I have a problem where I have to convert 0.5kW into kWh. How can I do that?

    Try reading the section where they 'convert watts to watt-hours'.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
