## 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

## 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.

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.
