How to Convert Biots to Megaamperes

To convert a biot measurement to a megaampere measurement, divide the electric current by the conversion ratio. One megaampere is equal to 100,000 biots, so use this simple formula to convert:

megaamperes = biots ÷ 100,000

The electric current in megaamperes is equal to the biots divided by 100,000.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 biots to megaamperes using the formula above.
50,000 Bi = (50,000 ÷ 100,000) = 0.5 MA

Biots and megaamperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


The biot is a unit of electrical current named for Jean-Baptiste Biot. One biot is equal to one abampere.

A biot is sometimes also referred to as an abampere. Biots can be abbreviated as Bi; for example, 1 biot can be written as 1 Bi.


One megaampere is equal to 1,000,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The megaampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. A megaampere is sometimes also referred to as a megaamp. Megaamperes can be abbreviated as MA; for example, 1 megaampere can be written as 1 MA.
