How to Convert Microwatts to Megawatts

To convert a microwatt measurement to a megawatt measurement, divide the power by the conversion ratio. One megawatt is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 microwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = microwatts ÷ 1,000,000,000,000

The power in megawatts is equal to the microwatts divided by 1,000,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000,000 microwatts to megawatts using the formula above.
5,000,000,000,000 µW = (5,000,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000,000) = 5 MW

Microwatts and megawatts 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.

Megawatts

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

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
