## How to Convert Megajoules to Gigajoules

To convert a megajoule measurement to a gigajoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megajoule is equal to 0.001 gigajoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the megajoules multiplied by 0.001.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 megajoules to gigajoules using the formula above.

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

## Megajoules

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

The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 10^{9}. Megajoules can be abbreviated as *MJ*, for example 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.

## 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 10^{6}. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as *GJ*, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
