How to Convert Kiloohms to Megaohms

To convert a kiloohm measurement to a megaohm measurement, divide the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One megaohm is equal to 1,000 kiloohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

megaohms = kiloohms ÷ 1,000

The electrical resistance in megaohms is equal to the kiloohms divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 kiloohms to megaohms using the formula above.
5,000 kΩ = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 MΩ

Kiloohms and megaohms are both units used to measure electrical resistance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kiloohms

One kiloohm is equal to 1,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The kiloohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kiloohms can be abbreviated as kΩ, for example 1 kiloohm can be written as 1 kΩ.

Megaohms

One megaohm is equal to 1,000,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The megaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ, for example 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.
