How to Convert Megavolts to Kilovolts

conversion scale showing megavolts and equivalent kilovolts voltage values

To convert a megavolt measurement to a kilovolt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One megavolt is equal to 1,000 kilovolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilovolts = megavolts × 1,000

The voltage in kilovolts is equal to the megavolts multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megavolts to kilovolts using the formula above.
5 MV = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 kV

Megavolts and kilovolts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Megavolts

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 109. Megavolts can be abbreviated as MV, for example 1 megavolt can be written as 1 MV.

Kilovolts

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

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV, for example 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.
