#### keV to eV

Kiloelectronvolts can be abbreviated as keV; for example, 1 kiloelectronvolt can be written as 1 keV.

The electronvolt is a unit of energy used in physics, most commonly in electrostatic particle accelerator sciences.

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV; for example, 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.

#### How to convert keV to eV

One kiloelectron-volt is equal to 1000 electron-volts:

1keV = 1000eV

The energy in electron-volts E(eV) is equal to the energy in kiloelectron-volts E(keV) times 1000:

E(eV)

= E(keV) × 1000

#### Example

Convert 5keV to eV:

E(eV) = 5keV × 1000 = 5000eV
