How to Convert Kiloelectronvolts to Megaelectronvolts

To convert a kiloelectronvolt measurement to a megaelectronvolt measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio. One megaelectronvolt is equal to 1,000 kiloelectronvolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megaelectronvolts = kiloelectronvolts ÷ 1,000

The energy in megaelectronvolts is equal to the kiloelectronvolts divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500 kiloelectronvolts to megaelectronvolts using the formula above.
500 keV = (500 ÷ 1,000) = 0.5 MeV

Kiloelectronvolts and megaelectronvolts 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.

Megaelectronvolts

Megaelectronvolts can be abbreviated as MeV, for example 1 megaelectronvolt can be written as 1 MeV.
