How to Convert Henries to Megahenries

To convert a henry measurement to a megahenry measurement, divide the electrical inductance by the conversion ratio. One megahenry is equal to 1,000,000 henries, so use this simple formula to convert:

megahenries = henries ÷ 1,000,000

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

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

Henries

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]

Megahenries

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 106. Megahenries can be abbreviated as MH; for example, 1 megahenry can be written as 1 MH.
