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 megaelectronvolts to gigajoules using the formula above.
5 MeV = (5 × 1.6022E-22) = 8.0109E-22 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 106. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
