How to Convert Megaelectronvolts to Gigajoules

To convert a measurement in megaelectronvolts to a measurement in gigajoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1.6022E-22 gigajoules/megaelectronvolt.

Since one megaelectronvolt is equal to 1.6022E-22 gigajoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = megaelectronvolts × 1.6022E-22

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

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

What Is a Megaelectronvolt?

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

What Is a Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is 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 billions, or 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
