How to convert milliwatts to megawatts (mW to MW)
The formula for converting milliwatts to megawatts is: MW = mW × 0.000000001. To calculate the milliwatt value in megawatts first substitute the milliwatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliwatt in megawatts we follow these steps:
MW = mW × 0.000000001
MW = 1 × 0.000000001
MW = 0.000000001
In other words, 1 milliwatt is equal to 0.000000001 megawatts.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 milliwatts to megawatts is:
- Understand the conversion formula: MW = mW × 0.000000001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for mW so the formula becomes: MW = 3 × 0.000000001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 0.000000001 = 0.000000003 MW
In summary, 3 milliwatts is equal to 0.000000003 megawatts.
Converting megawatts to milliwatts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. megawatts to milliwatts, you would use the following formula: mW = MW × 1000000000. To convert megawatts to milliwatts first substitute the megawatt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megawatt in milliwatts we follow these steps:
mW = MW × 1000000000
mW = 1 × 1000000000
mW = 1000000000
Or in other words, 1 megawatt is equal to 1000000000 milliwatts.
