How to Convert Henries to Megahenries

To convert a measurement in henries to a measurement in megahenries, divide the electrical inductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 henries/megahenry.

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

megahenries = henries ÷ 1,000,000

The electrical inductance in megahenries is equal to the electrical inductance in henries divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 henries to megahenries using the formula above.
megahenries = (5,000,000 H ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 MH

Henries and megahenries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Henry?

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[1]

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H; for example, 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[2]

What Is a Megahenry?

One megahenry is equal to 1,000,000 henries, which are the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The megahenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megahenries can be abbreviated as MH; for example, 1 megahenry can be written as 1 MH.
