How to Convert Kiloelectronvolts to Electronvolts

To convert a kiloelectronvolt measurement to an electronvolt measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kiloelectronvolt is equal to 1,000 electronvolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

electronvolts = kiloelectronvolts × 1,000

The energy in electronvolts is equal to the kiloelectronvolts multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kiloelectronvolts to electronvolts using the formula above.
5 keV = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 eV

Kiloelectronvolts and electronvolts are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kiloelectronvolts

Kiloelectronvolts can be abbreviated as keV, for example 1 kiloelectronvolt can be written as 1 keV.

Electronvolts

The electronvolt is a unit of energy used in physics, most commonly in electrostatic particle accelerator sciences.

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV, for example 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.
