## Watts to gigawatts conversion

 Enter power in watts: W Result in gigawatts: GW

### Watts to GW Conversion

This is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in watts (W) to the power in Gigawatts (GW). When using the converter, the initial step is to enter the watt value in the blank text field. The ‘Convert’ button initiates the conversion from a watt to Gigawatts. This gives you the conversion result, displayed below the control buttons in Gigawatts. The ‘Reset’ button is used to enhance the flexibility of the Watt to Gigawatt converter since it can only perform one conversion at a time. It readjusts the calculator with a single click.

##### Example

Convert 50000 watts to Gigawatts

##### Solution

First, enter the watt value (50000) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to initiate the conversion from a watt to Gigawatts. The conversion result is shown as;

50000 Watts = 0.00005 Gigawatts

This means that there are 0.00005 Gigawatts in 50000 watts

Use the same procedure when converting new values in watts to get the corresponding result in Gigawatts.

#### Formula of converting watts to gigawatts

The power units’ conversion factor of watts to gigawatts is 0.000000001

1W = 10-9GW = 0.000000001 GW

This means that there are 0.000000001 gigawatts in one watt. If you want to determine the number of gigawatts in watts, simply multiply the value in watts by the conversion factor.

P (GW) = P (W) x 0.000000001

For example; Convert 200,000 watts to gigawatts

Solution:

200,000 x 0.000000001

0.0002 gigawatts (GW) in 200,000 watts (W)

Another alternative to determining the power in gigawatts is when the power in watts is divided by 1,000,000,000.

P (GW) = P (W) / 109

For example; convert 6,000,000 watts into gigawatts

Solution:

6,000,000 / 1,000,000,000

= 0.006 Gigawatts (GW) in 6,000,000 watts (W)

The Watts to Gigawatts conversion table is used in the conversion of common values from watts to gigawatts on a scale of 0 W to 1,000,000,000 W.
