## What is the Formula to convert Watts to Kilowatts?

The formula to convert given power from Watts to Kilowatts is:

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e3

Substitute the given value of power in watts, i.e., Power_{(Watts)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the power in kilowatts, i.e., Power_{(Kilowatts)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a smartphone charger delivers 15 watts (W) of power.

Convert this power output from watts to Kilowatts.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The power in watts is:

Power_{(Watts)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert power from watts to kilowatts is:

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e3

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Power _{(Watts)} = 15** in the above formula.

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = 15 / 1e3

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = 0.015

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 W** is equal to **0.015 kW**.

The power is **0.015 kW**, in kilowatts.

### Consider that a laptop uses 65 watts (W) of power while charging.

Convert this power usage from watts to Kilowatts.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The power in watts is:

Power_{(Watts)} = 65

**Formula:**

The formula to convert power from watts to kilowatts is:

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e3

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Power _{(Watts)} = 65** in the above formula.

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = 65 / 1e3

Power_{(Kilowatts)} = 0.065

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **65 W** is equal to **0.065 kW**.

The power is **0.065 kW**, in kilowatts.

## Watts

The watt (W) is the SI unit of power, defined as one joule per second. It is used to measure the rate of energy transfer and is commonly used in a wide range of applications, including electricity, mechanics, and heating.

## Kilowatts

A kilowatt (kW) is equal to 1,000 watts. It is commonly used to express the power output of engines and the power consumption of electrical devices. For example, household appliances and electric vehicles are often rated in kilowatts.

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

### 1. How do I convert watts to kilowatts?

To convert watts to kilowatts, divide the number of watts by 1,000 because one kilowatt equals 1,000 watts. For example, if you have 2,500 watts, dividing by 1,000 gives you 2.5 kilowatts.

### 2. What is the formula for converting watts to kilowatts?

The formula is: \( \text{kilowatts} = \dfrac{\text{watts}}{1,000} \).

### 3. How many kilowatts are in a watt?

There are 0.001 kilowatts in one watt, since 1 divided by 1,000 equals 0.001.

### 4. Is 1,000 watts equal to 1 kilowatt?

Yes, 1,000 watts is exactly equal to 1 kilowatt.

### 5. How do I convert kilowatts to watts?

To convert kilowatts to watts, multiply the number of kilowatts by 1,000. For example, 3 kilowatts multiplied by 1,000 equals 3,000 watts.

### 6. Why do we divide by 1,000 to convert watts to kilowatts?

Because the prefix 'kilo' means 1,000, so one kilowatt equals 1,000 watts. Dividing by 1,000 converts watts into kilowatts.

### 7. How many kilowatts are there in 5,000 watts?

Divide 5,000 watts by 1,000 to get 5 kilowatts.
