## How to Convert Millivolts to Kilovolts

To convert a measurement in millivolts to a measurement in kilovolts, divide the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 millivolts/kilovolt.

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

kilovolts = millivolts ÷ 1,000,000

The voltage in kilovolts is equal to the voltage in millivolts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 millivolts to kilovolts using the formula above.
kilovolts = (5,000,000 mV ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 kV

## What Is a Millivolt?

One millivolt is equal to 1/1,000 of a volt, which is the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The millivolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Millivolts can be abbreviated as mV; for example, 1 millivolt can be written as 1 mV.

## What Is a Kilovolt?

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 thousands, or 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV; for example, 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.
