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

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

Power_{(Megawatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e6

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 megawatts, i.e., Power_{(Megawatts)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this power output from watts to Megawatts.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The power in watts is:

Power_{(Watts)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert power from watts to megawatts is:

Power_{(Megawatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e6

**Substitution:**

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

Power_{(Megawatts)} = 15 / 1e6

Power_{(Megawatts)} = 0.000015

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 W** is equal to **0.000015 MW**.

The power is **0.000015 MW**, in megawatts.

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

Convert this power usage from watts to Megawatts.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The power in watts is:

Power_{(Watts)} = 65

**Formula:**

The formula to convert power from watts to megawatts is:

Power_{(Megawatts)} = Power_{(Watts)} / 1e6

**Substitution:**

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

Power_{(Megawatts)} = 65 / 1e6

Power_{(Megawatts)} = 0.000065

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **65 W** is equal to **0.000065 MW**.

The power is **0.000065 MW**, in megawatts.

## 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.

## Megawatts

A megawatt (MW) is equal to one million watts. This unit is often used to measure the output of power plants or the power consumption of large-scale facilities. It is a standard unit in the field of energy generation and consumption.

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

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

To convert watts to megawatts, divide the number of watts by 1,000,000, since one megawatt equals 1,000,000 watts. For example, 2,500,000 watts divided by 1,000,000 equals 2.5 megawatts.

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

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

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

There are \( 1 \times 10^{-6} \) megawatts in one watt, which is equivalent to 0.000001 megawatts.

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

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

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

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

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

Because the prefix 'mega' means one million, so dividing by 1,000,000 converts watts into megawatts.

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

5,000,000 watts divided by 1,000,000 equals 5 megawatts.
