# Convert 1 mgw to mlw

In this article I will show you how to convert 1 megawatts into milliwatts. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 1 mgw to mlw. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Megawatts to Milliwatts

A megawatt is greater than a milliwatt. I know that a mgw is greater than a mlw because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 1 megawatts into milliwatts, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mgw to mlw is:

1 mgw = 1000000000 mlw

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 1 mgw to mlw by multiplying `1000000000` by the number of megawatts we have, which is 1.

1 x 1000000000 = 1000000000 mlw

So, the answer to the question "what is 1 megawatts in milliwatts?" is 1000000000 mlw.
