## How to Convert Gigaohms to Megaohms

To convert a measurement in gigaohms to a measurement in megaohms, multiply the electrical resistance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 megaohms/gigaohm.

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

megaohms = gigaohms × 1,000

The electrical resistance in megaohms is equal to the electrical resistance in gigaohms multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigaohms to megaohms using the formula above.
megaohms = (5 GΩ × 1,000) = 5,000 MΩ

### How Many Megaohms Are in a Gigaohm?

There are 1,000 megaohms in a gigaohm, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GΩ = 1,000 MΩ

## What Is a Gigaohm?

One gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The gigaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigaohms can be abbreviated as GΩ; for example, 1 gigaohm can be written as 1 GΩ.

## What Is a Megaohm?

One megaohm is equal to 1,000,000 ohms. A megaohm is the resistance across a conductor with an electrical potential difference of 1,000,000 volts with one ampere of current flowing through it.

The megaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ; for example, 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.
