How to convert milliwatts to kilowatts (mW to kW)
The formula for converting milliwatts to kilowatts is: kW = mW × 0.000001. To calculate the milliwatt value in kilowatts first substitute the milliwatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform 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
In other words, 1 milliwatt is equal to 0.000001 kilowatts.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 milliwatts to kilowatts is:
- Understand the conversion formula: kW = mW × 0.000001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for mW so the formula becomes: kW = 9 × 0.000001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 0.000001 = 0.000009 kW
In summary, 9 milliwatts is equal to 0.000009 kilowatts.
Converting kilowatts to milliwatts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilowatts to milliwatts, you would use the following formula: mW = kW × 1000000. To convert kilowatts to milliwatts first substitute the kilowatt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt in milliwatts we follow these steps:
mW = kW × 1000000
mW = 1 × 1000000
mW = 1000000
Or in other words, 1 kilowatt is equal to 1000000 milliwatts.
