## How to convert watts to megawatts (W to MW)

The formula for converting watts to megawatts is: MW = W × 0.000001. To calculate the watt value in megawatts first substitute the watt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt in megawatts we follow these steps:

MW = W × 0.000001

M1 = W × 0.000001

MW = 0.000001

In other words, 1 watt is equal to 0.000001 megawatts.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 watts to megawatts is:

- Understand the conversion formula: MW = W × 0.000001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for W so the formula becomes: M4 = W × 0.000001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 0.000001 = 0.000004 MW

In summary, 4 watts is equal to 0.000004 megawatts.

## Converting megawatts to watts

Converting from megawatts (MW) to watts (W) involves a straightforward conversion based on the metric system. The formula to convert from megawatts to watts is: W = MW × 1000000. The conversion process is shown below.**1. Understanding the Metric System**In the metric system, "mega" is a prefix that denotes 1,000,000. So, 1 megawatt is equal to 1,000,000 watts.

**2. The conversion formula**To convert from megawatts to watts, you simply need to multiply the number of megawatts by 1,000,000 (as shown in the formula above). For example, if you have 5 megawatts, the conversion from megaw to watts would be: Watts = 5 MW × 1,000,000 = 5,000,000 MW.
