## How to Convert Kilovolts to Megavolts

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

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

megavolts = kilovolts ÷ 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 kilovolts to megavolts using the formula above.
megavolts = (5,000 kV ÷ 1,000) = 5 MV ## 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 Megavolt?

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

The megavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megavolts can be abbreviated as MV; for example, 1 megavolt can be written as 1 MV.
