How to Convert Volts to Megavolts

To convert a volt measurement to a megavolt measurement, divide the voltage by the conversion ratio. One megavolt is equal to 1,000,000 volts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megavolts = volts ÷ 1,000,000

The voltage in megavolts is equal to the volts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 volts to megavolts using the formula above.
5,000,000 V = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 MV

Volts and megavolts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Volts

Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor.[1] One volt is equal to the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The volt is the SI derived unit for voltage in the metric system. Volts can be abbreviated as V, for example 1 volt can be written as 1 V.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the potential difference in volts as an expression using current and resistance.

VV = IA × R

The potential difference in volts is equal to the current in amperes times the resistance in ohms.

Megavolts

One megavolt is equal to 1,000,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The megavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megavolts can be abbreviated as MV, for example 1 megavolt can be written as 1 MV.
