How to Convert Microwatts to Kilowatts

To convert a microwatt measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One microwatt is equal to 1.0E-9 kilowatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatts = microwatts × 1.0E-9

The power in kilowatts is equal to the microwatts multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 microwatts to kilowatts using the formula above.
5 µW = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 kW

Microwatts and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Microwatts

One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW, for example 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.

Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
