How to Convert Electronvolts to Megaelectronvolts

To convert a measurement in electronvolts to a measurement in megaelectronvolts, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 electronvolts/megaelectronvolt.

Since one megaelectronvolt is equal to 1,000,000 electronvolts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megaelectronvolts = electronvolts ÷ 1,000,000

The energy in megaelectronvolts is equal to the energy in electronvolts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 electronvolts to megaelectronvolts using the formula above.
megaelectronvolts = (500,000 eV ÷ 1,000,000) = 0.5 MeV

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

What Is an Electronvolt?

An electronvolt is the amount of energy required to accelerate an electron through a difference in electric potential of one volt in vacuum. One electronvolt is equal to the charge of 1.602176634 × 10−19 C, and is equal to the energy of 1.602176634 × 10−19 Joules.[1]

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.

What Is a Megaelectronvolt?

Megaelectronvolts can be abbreviated as MeV; for example, 1 megaelectronvolt can be written as 1 MeV.
