How to Convert Megaohms to Abohms

To convert a megaohm measurement to a abohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One megaohm is equal to 1.0E+15 abohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

abohms = megaohms × 1.0E+15

The electrical resistance in abohms is equal to the megaohms multiplied by 1.0E+15.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megaohms to abohms using the formula above.
5 MΩ = (5 × 1.0E+15) = 5.0E+15 abΩ

Megaohms and abohms are both units used to measure electrical resistance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One megaohm is equal to 1,000,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The megaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 109. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ, for example 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.


The abohm is the resistance between two points of an electrical conductor transmitting a current of one abampere when the potential difference is one abvolt. One abohm is equal to one nanoohm.

The abohm is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) electromagnetic unit of electrical resistance. Abohms can be abbreviated as abΩ, for example 1 abohm can be written as 1 abΩ.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
