How to Convert Megaohms to Gigaohms

To convert a megaohm measurement to a gigaohm measurement, divide the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One gigaohm is equal to 1,000 megaohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigaohms = megaohms ÷ 1,000

The electrical resistance in gigaohms is equal to the megaohms divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 megaohms to gigaohms using the formula above.
5,000 MΩ = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 GΩ

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

Megaohms

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 106. Megaohms can be abbreviated as MΩ; for example, 1 megaohm can be written as 1 MΩ.

Gigaohms

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

The gigaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigaohms can be abbreviated as GΩ; for example, 1 gigaohm can be written as 1 GΩ.
