How to Convert Kiloohms to Megaohms

To convert a kiloohm measurement to a megaohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One kiloohm is equal to 0.001 megaohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

megaohms = kiloohms × 0.001

The electrical resistance in megaohms is equal to the kiloohms multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kiloohms to megaohms using the formula above.
5 kΩ = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 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 109. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ, for example 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.
