#### Watts to megawatts

One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.

The watt is the SI derived unit for power in the metric system. Watts can be abbreviated as W; for example, 1 watt can be written as 1 W.

One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

#### How to convert watts to megawatts

1W = 0.000001MW

1MW = 1000000W

Watts to megawatts conversion formula

The power in megawatts P(MW) is equal to the power in watts P(W) divided by 1000000:

P(MW) = P(W) / 1000000

#### Example

Convert 5W to megawatts:

P(MW) = 5W / 1000000 = 0.000005MW
