Do you want to convert megajoules to watt-hours?

## How to Convert Watt-Hours to Megajoules

To convert a measurement in watt-hours to a measurement in megajoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.0036 megajoules/watt-hour.

Since one watt-hour is equal to 0.0036 megajoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megajoules = watt-hours × 0.0036

The energy in megajoules is equal to the energy in watt-hours multiplied by 0.0036.

For example, here's how to convert 500 watt-hours to megajoules using the formula above.
megajoules = (500 Wh × 0.0036) = 1.8 MJ

## What Is a Watt-Hour?

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

Watt-hours are usually abbreviated as Wh, although the formally adopted expression is W·h. The abbreviation W h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh, 1 W·h, or 1 W h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.

## What Is a Megajoule?

One megajoule is equal to 1,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megajoules can be abbreviated as MJ; for example, 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.
