## How to Convert Megavolts to Gigavolts

To convert a measurement in megavolts to a measurement in gigavolts, divide the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 megavolts/gigavolt.

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

gigavolts = megavolts ÷ 1,000

The voltage in gigavolts is equal to the voltage in megavolts divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 megavolts to gigavolts using the formula above.
gigavolts = (5,000 MV ÷ 1,000) = 5 GV

## What Is a Megavolt?

One megavolt is equal to 1,000,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The megavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megavolts can be abbreviated as MV; for example, 1 megavolt can be written as 1 MV.

## What Is a Gigavolt?

One gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The gigavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV; for example, 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.
