How to convert kilowatts to milliwatts (kW to mW)
The formula for converting kilowatts to milliwatts is: mW = kW × 1000000. To calculate the kilowatt value in milliwatts first substitute the kilowatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt in milliwatts we follow these steps:
mW = kW × 1000000
mW = 1 × 1000000
mW = 1000000
In other words, 1 kilowatt is equal to 1000000 milliwatts.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 7 kilowatts to milliwatts is:
- Understand the conversion formula: mW = kW × 1000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for kW so the formula becomes: mW = 7 × 1000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 1000000 = 7000000 mW
In summary, 7 kilowatts is equal to 7000000 milliwatts.
Converting milliwatts to kilowatts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. milliwatts to kilowatts, you would use the following formula: kW = mW × 0.000001. To convert milliwatts to kilowatts first substitute the milliwatt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliwatt in kilowatts we follow these steps:
kW = mW × 0.000001
kW = 1 × 0.000001
kW = 0.000001
Or in other words, 1 milliwatt is equal to 0.000001 kilowatts.
