## How to Convert Milliwatts to Megawatts

To convert a measurement in milliwatts to a measurement in megawatts, divide the power by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 milliwatts/megawatt.

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

megawatts = milliwatts ÷ 1,000,000,000

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

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

## What Is a Milliwatt?

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

The milliwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as mW; for example, 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.

## What Is a Megawatt?

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 millions, or 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
