How to Convert Megaelectronvolts to Gigajoules

To convert a megaelectronvolt measurement to a gigajoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megaelectronvolt is equal to 1.6022E-22 gigajoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = megaelectronvolts × 1.6022E-22

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the megaelectronvolts multiplied by 1.6022E-22.

For example, here's how to convert 5.0E+21 megaelectronvolts to gigajoules using the formula above.
5.0E+21 MeV = (5.0E+21 × 1.6022E-22) = 0.801088 GJ

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

Megaelectronvolts

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

Gigajoules

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
