How to Convert Megaelectronvolts to Electronvolts

To convert a measurement in megaelectronvolts to a measurement in electronvolts, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 electronvolts/megaelectronvolt.

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

electronvolts = megaelectronvolts × 1,000,000

The energy in electronvolts is equal to the energy in megaelectronvolts multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megaelectronvolts to electronvolts using the formula above.
electronvolts = (5 MeV × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 eV

How Many Electronvolts Are in a Megaelectronvolt?

There are 1,000,000 electronvolts in a megaelectronvolt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 MeV = 1,000,000 eV

Megaelectronvolts and electronvolts are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Megaelectronvolt?

Megaelectronvolts can be abbreviated as MeV; for example, 1 megaelectronvolt can be written as 1 MeV.

What Is an Electronvolt?

An electronvolt is the amount of energy required to accelerate an electron through a difference in electric potential of one volt in vacuum. One electronvolt is equal to the charge of 1.602176634 × 10−19 C, and is equal to the energy of 1.602176634 × 10−19 Joules.[1]

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV; for example, 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.
