## How to Convert Megajoules to Watt-hours

To convert a megajoule measurement to a watt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megajoule is equal to 277.777778 watt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in watt-hours is equal to the megajoules multiplied by 277.777778.

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

Megajoules and watt-hours 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^{6}. Megajoules can be abbreviated as *MJ*, for example 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.

## Watt-hours

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

Watt-hours are usually abbreviated as *Wh*, although the formally adopted expression is *W·h*. The abbreviation *W h* is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh, 1 W·h, or 1 W h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.^{[1]}
