## How to convert milliwatts to watts (mW to W)

The formula for converting milliwatts to watts is: W = mW × 0.001. To calculate the milliwatt value in watts first substitute the milliwatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliwatt in watts we follow these steps:

W = mW × 0.001

W = 1 × 0.001

W = 0.001

In other words, 1 milliwatt is equal to 0.001 watts.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 milliwatts to watts is:

- Understand the conversion formula: W = mW × 0.001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for mW so the formula becomes: W = 9 × 0.001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 0.001 = 0.009 W

In summary, 9 milliwatts is equal to 0.009 watts.

## Converting watts to milliwatts

In order to convert the other way around i.e. watts to milliwatts, you would use the following formula: mW = W × 1000. To convert watts to milliwatts first substitute the watt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt in milliwatts we follow these steps:

mW = W × 1000

m1 = W × 1000

mW = 1000

Or in other words, 1 watt is equal to 1000 milliwatts.
