## 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:

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.

### 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

Gigaohms and megaohms are both units used to measure electrical resistance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## 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 10^{9}. 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 10^{6}. Megaohms can be abbreviated as *MΩ*; for example, 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.
