Convert Microwatts to Watts
Enter the power in microwatts below to get the value converted to watts.
How to Convert Microwatts to Watts
To convert a microwatt measurement to a watt measurement, divide the power by the conversion ratio. One watt is equal to 1,000,000 microwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:
The power in watts is equal to the microwatts divided by 1,000,000.
Microwatts and watts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.
The watt is the SI derived unit for power in the metric system. Watts can be abbreviated as W, for example 1 watt can be written as 1 W.
PW = IA × VV
