How to Convert Kilovolts to Gigavolts

To convert a kilovolt measurement to a gigavolt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One kilovolt is equal to 1.0E-6 gigavolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigavolts = kilovolts × 1.0E-6

The voltage in gigavolts is equal to the kilovolts multiplied by 1.0E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilovolts to gigavolts using the formula above.
5 kV = (5 × 1.0E-6) = 5.0E-6 GV

Kilovolts and gigavolts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilovolts

One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV, for example 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.

Gigavolts

One gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The gigavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 106. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV, for example 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.
