eV stands for electronvolt, and MeV stands for megaelectronvolt. These are units of energy commonly used in physics and particularly in the field of particle physics and atomic physics to describe the energy of subatomic particles and interactions.

## Electronvolt (eV)

It is the amount of kinetic energy gained or lost by an electron (or other elementary charge) when it is accelerated through an electric potential difference of 1 volt. It’s a very small unit of energy and is often used to express energies at the atomic and subatomic scale.

## Megaelectronvolt (MeV)

It is equal to one million electronvolts. It’s used to describe larger energies, often associated with nuclear reactions and particle interactions. In particle physics, MeV energies are commonly used to describe the mass-energy of particles or the energy released in nuclear reactions.

### How to convert eV to MeV

1eV = 0.000001MeV

#### Conversion Formula

E_{(MeV)} = E_{(eV)} / 1000000

Example – Convert 500eV to MeV

E_{(MeV)} = 500eV / 1000000 = 0.0005MeV

## FAQs on eV to MeV conversion

### What is the difference between eV and MeV?

eV stands for electronvolt, a unit of energy often used in atomic and subatomic physics. MeV stands for megaelectronvolt, which is a million times greater than an electronvolt. It is commonly used to express higher energy levels, especially in the context of particle physics.

### How many volts is 1 eV?

The conversion from electronvolts (eV) to volts (V) involves the elementary charge (e), approximately 1.602 x 10^-19 coulombs. 1 eV is equal to approximately 1.602 x 10^-19 volts.

### What is 1 eV energy?

1 electronvolt (eV) is the energy acquired or lost by an electron when it moves through an electric potential difference of 1 volt.

### Which is greater, eV or MeV?

MeV (megaelectronvolt) is greater than eV (electronvolt). 1 MeV is equivalent to 1 million eV.

### How much energy is 17.6 MeV?

17.6 MeV is equivalent to 17.6 million electronvolts (eV), or 1.76 x 10^7 eV.

### Is MeV the same as eV?

No, MeV (megaelectronvolt) is not the same as eV (electronvolt). MeV is a unit of energy that is a million times larger than eV.

### What is 1 eV equal to in MeV?

1 eV is equal to 1 x 10^-6 MeV, which means 1 millionth of a megaelectronvolt.

### How to convert 1 eV to MeV?

To convert electronvolts (eV) to megaelectronvolts (MeV), divide the value in eV by 1,000,000 (since 1 MeV = 1,000,000 eV).

### What is the relationship between eV and MeV?

The relationship between eV and MeV is that 1 MeV is equal to 1 million electronvolts (1 MeV = 1,000,000 eV). MeV is a larger unit used to express higher energies than eV, which is often used for atomic and molecular scales of energy.
