GW to Watt Conversion

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in Gigawatts (GW) to power in watts (W). The first step when using this converter is to enter the value of Gigawatts in the blank text field.

Click the ‘Control' button to initiate the conversion from Gigawatts to watts. The results in watts will be displayed immediately below the two controls. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all data of previous calculations from the calculator.

The ‘Reset' button enhances the efficiency of the calculator since it can only perform one conversion at a time. It reduces the time needed when carrying out new conversions.

Example

Convert 0.0002 Gigawatts to the power in watts

Solution

First, enter the value in Gigawatts (0.0002) in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert' button. The result in watts will be displayed as; 200000 W

Click the ‘Reset' buttonIf you have new values in Gigawatts,  and enter the value in the blank text field. Use the same procedure to obtain the corresponding results in watts.

Formula used in converting Gigawatts to watts

1 GW = 109 W= 1000000000 W

One Gigawatts is equivalent to 10 raised to power 9 watts or 1000000000 W

1 W = 10 -9 GW = 1/1000000000 W

One Watt is equivalent to 10 raised to power -9 Gigawatts or 0.000000001 W

Therefore, the power conversion formula of Gigawatts to Watts is given by;

P (W) = 109 x P (GW)

This implies that the power in watts is given by multiplying the power in Gigawatts by 10 raised to power 9.

Using the example above,

Convert 0.0002 Gigawatts to the power in watts

The calculation will be;

P (W) = 109 x 0.0002 (GW)

= 2 x 105W

= 200000 Watts (W)
