## How to Convert Kilovolts to Gigavolts

To convert a measurement in kilovolts to a measurement in gigavolts, divide the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 kilovolts/gigavolt.

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

gigavolts = kilovolts ÷ 1,000,000

The voltage in gigavolts is equal to the voltage in kilovolts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 kilovolts to gigavolts using the formula above.
gigavolts = (5,000,000 kV ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 GV

## What Is a Kilovolt?

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 thousands, or 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV; for example, 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.

## What Is a Gigavolt?

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 billions, or 109. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV; for example, 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.
