# Convert 231 mlw to kw

In this article I will show you how to convert 231 milliwatts into kilowatts. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 231 mlw to kw. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Milliwatts to Kilowatts

A milliwatt is smaller than a kilowatt. I know that a mlw is smaller than a kw 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 231 milliwatts into kilowatts, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mlw to kw is:

1 mlw = 1.0E-6 kw

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 231 mlw to kw by multiplying `1.0E-6` by the number of milliwatts we have, which is 231.

231 x 1.0E-6 = 0.000231 kw
