All of the products you use at home nowadays have the word "power" written on them. If you are unaware, a light bulb used in a house comes in many sizes and produces a lot of heat, which is why they are not favored in small bulbs; consequently, a miniature version of sixty watts is used to prevent the light from burning out. You'll also need the Kilowatt to Megawatt converter online tool to determine how much electricity you use at home.
This power converter is useful if you want to convert milliwatts to watts or watts to megawatts. You may instantly switch between twenty different power units by entering one amount into the calculator.
We used twenty typical force units in our power converter. The most prevalent is the SI unit watt and its 5 most common multiples:
- watts (W)
- milliwatts (mW)
- kilowatts (kW)
- megawatts (MW)
- gigawatts (GW)
What is a watt?
Watt is a fundamental SI power unit equal to one joule per second. In general, terms, If the velocity of an item is maintained constant at one meter per second against a continual opposing force of one newton, the rate of work done is one watt.
The following is the fundamental definition of a watt unit:
1 milliwatt = 0.001 watt [W] = 10⁻³ watt [W]
1 kilowatt = 1000 watt [W] = 10³ watt [W]
1 megawatt = 1000000 watt [W] = 10⁶ watt [W]
1 gigawatt = 1000000000 watt [W] = 10⁹ watt [W]
If the velocity of an item is maintained constant at one meter per second against the opposing force of one newton, the rate of work done is 1 watt.
