How to Convert Megaelectronvolts to Joules

To convert a megaelectronvolt measurement to a joule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megaelectronvolt is equal to 1.6022E-13 joules, so use this simple formula to convert:

joules = megaelectronvolts × 1.6022E-13

The energy in joules is equal to the megaelectronvolts multiplied by 1.6022E-13.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000,000 megaelectronvolts to joules using the formula above.
5,000,000,000,000 MeV = (5,000,000,000,000 × 1.6022E-13) = 0.801088 J

Megaelectronvolts and joules 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.

Joules

The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.[1] One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.

One joule is also equal to the energy needed to move an electric charge of one coulomb through a potential difference of one volt. In addition, one joule is also equal to the one watt-second.

The joule is the SI derived unit for energy in the metric system. Joules can be abbreviated as J, for example 1 joule can be written as 1 J.
