How to Convert Kiloohms to Megaohms

To convert a measurement in kiloohms to a measurement in megaohms, divide the electrical resistance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 kiloohms/megaohm.

Since one megaohm is equal to 1,000 kiloohms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megaohms = kiloohms ÷ 1,000

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

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

What Is a Kiloohm?

One kiloohm is equal to 1,000 ohms. A kiloohm is the resistance across a conductor with an electrical potential difference of 1,000 volts with one ampere of current flowing through it.

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 thousands, or 103. Kiloohms can be abbreviated as kΩ; for example, 1 kiloohm can be written as 1 kΩ.

What Is a Megaohm?

One megaohm is equal to 1,000,000 ohms. A megaohm is the resistance across a conductor with an electrical potential difference of 1,000,000 volts with one ampere of current flowing through it.

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 millions, or 106. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ; for example, 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.
