How to Convert Gigavolts to Kilovolts

conversion scale showing gigavolts and equivalent kilovolts voltage values

To convert a gigavolt measurement to a kilovolt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000 kilovolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilovolts = gigavolts × 1,000,000

The voltage in kilovolts is equal to the gigavolts multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigavolts to kilovolts using the formula above.
5 GV = (5 × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 kV

Gigavolts and kilovolts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Gigavolts

One gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The gigavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV, for example 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.

Kilovolts

One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV, for example 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.
