How to Convert Megaohms to Gigaohms

To convert a measurement in megaohms to a measurement in gigaohms, divide the electrical resistance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 megaohms/gigaohm.

Since one gigaohm is equal to 1,000 megaohms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigaohms = megaohms ÷ 1,000

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

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

What Is a Megaohm?

One megaohm is equal to 1,000,000 ohms. A megaohm is the resistance across a conductor with an electrical potential difference of 1,000,000 volts with one ampere of current flowing through it.

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

What Is a Gigaohm?

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 billions, or 109. Gigaohms can be abbreviated as GΩ; for example, 1 gigaohm can be written as 1 GΩ.
