Watt is a measure of power. One watt (W) is the rate at which work is done when one ampere (A) of current flows through an electrical potential difference of one volt (V).

While a megawatt is also a unit of power equal to one million watts.

**Formula to convert MW to W.**

Since we have been told that a megawatt is equivalent to one million watts.

Therefore to convert MW to W, we multiply the MW value by 1,000,000.

**Power in W = Power in MW x 1,000,000**

**Example:**

Convert 2 mega watts to watts.

**= 2 x 1,000,000**

**= 2,000,000 watts.**
