## How to convert kilowatts to watts (kW to W)

The formula for converting kilowatts to watts is: W = kW × 1000. To calculate the kilowatt value in watts first substitute the kilowatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt in watts we follow these steps:

W = kW × 1000

W = 1 × 1000

W = 1000

In other words, 1 kilowatt is equal to 1000 watts.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 kilowatts to watts is:

- Understand the conversion formula: W = kW × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for kW so the formula becomes: W = 5 × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 1000 = 5000 W

In summary, 5 kilowatts is equal to 5000 watts.

## Converting watts to kilowatts

In order to convert the other way around i.e. watts to kilowatts, you would use the following formula: kW = W × 0.001. To convert watts to kilowatts first substitute the watt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt in kilowatts we follow these steps:

kW = W × 0.001

k1 = W × 0.001

kW = 0.001

Or in other words, 1 watt is equal to 0.001 kilowatts.
