How to Convert Electronvolts to Gigajoules

To convert a electronvolt measurement to a gigajoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One electronvolt is equal to 1.6022E-28 gigajoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = electronvolts × 1.6022E-28

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the electronvolts multiplied by 1.6022E-28.

For example, here's how to convert 5 electronvolts to gigajoules using the formula above.
5 eV = (5 × 1.6022E-28) = 8.0109E-28 GJ

Electronvolts and gigajoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


The electronvolt is a unit of energy used in physics, most commonly in electrostatic particle accelerator sciences.

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV, for example 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.


One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 106. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
