## Milliwatts to Watts Converter

 Enter power in milliwatts: mW Result in watts: W

### mW to Watts Conversion

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

Click the ‘Control' button to initiate the conversion from Milliwatts 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 also reduces the time needed when carrying out new conversions.

##### Example

Convert 200 Milliwatts to the power in watts

##### Solution

First, enter the value in Milliwatts (200) in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert' button. The result in watts will be displayed as; 0.2 W

Click the ‘Reset' button if you have new values in Milliwatts, and enter the figure in the blank text field. Use the same procedure to obtain the corresponding results in watts.

#### Formula used in converting Milliwatts to watts

1 W = 1000 mW

One Watt is made up of one thousand milliwatts

1 mW = 0.001 W

One milliwatt is made up of 0.001 watts

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

P (W) = P (mW) / 1000

This implies that the power in watts is determined by dividing the power in Milliwatts by one thousand.

Using the example above,

Convert 200 Milliwatts to the power in watts

The calculation will be;

P (W) = 200 mW / 1000

= 0.2 Watts (W)

You can also use the milliwatts to watts conversion table to determine the conversions of common values from milliwatts to watts based on a scale of 1 mW to 1000 mW.
