How to Convert Megavolts to Volts

To convert a measurement in megavolts to a measurement in volts, multiply the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 volts/megavolt.

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

volts = megavolts × 1,000,000

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

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

How Many Volts Are in a Megavolt?

There are 1,000,000 volts in a megavolt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 MV = 1,000,000 V

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 Volt?

One volt is equal to the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The volt is the SI derived unit for voltage in the metric system. Volts can be abbreviated as V; for example, 1 volt can be written as 1 V.

Voltage and Ohm's Law

Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor.[1]

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the potential difference in volts as an expression using current and resistance.

VV = IA × R

The potential difference in volts is equal to the current in amperes times the resistance in ohms.
