Watts to MW conversion

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

Example

Convert 3,000 watts to Megawatts

Solution

First, enter the watt value (3000) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to initiate the conversion from a watt to Megawatts. The conversion result is shown as;

3,000 Watts = 0.003 Megawatts

This means that there are 0.003 Megawatts in 3000 watts

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

Formula of converting watts to megawatts

The power units’ conversion factor of watts to megawatts is 0.000001

1W = 10-6 MW = 0.000001 MW

This means that there are 0.000001 megawatts in one watt. If you want to determine the number of megawatts in watts, simply multiply the value in watts by the conversion factor.

P (MW) = P (W) x 0.000001

For example; Convert 400,000 watts to megawatts

Solution:

400,000 x 0.000001

0.4 megawatts (MW) in 400,000 watts (W)

Another alternative to determining the power in megawatts is by dividing the power in watts by 1,000,000.

P (MW) = P (W) / 106

For example; convert 600 watts into megawatts

Solution:

600 / 1,000,000

= 0.0006 Megawatts (MW) in 600 watts (W)

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