How to Convert Kilovolts to Megavolts

conversion scale showing kilovolts and equivalent megavolts voltage values

To convert a kilovolt measurement to a megavolt measurement, divide the voltage by the conversion ratio. One megavolt is equal to 1,000 kilovolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megavolts = kilovolts ÷ 1,000

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

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

Kilovolts and megavolts 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.

Megavolts

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 106. Megavolts can be abbreviated as MV; for example, 1 megavolt can be written as 1 MV.
