What is mega-electron volt?
The megaelectronvolt is a unit of energy equal to 1.60217656535x10-13 joules (1 MeV = 1.60217656535x10-13 J), the SI derived unit of energy. It is also equal to 1.60217656535x10-4 nanojoules (nJ), or 1.60217656535x10-10 millijoules (mJ), or 1.60217656535x10-16 kilojoules (kJ), or 106 electronvolts (eV) or 1,000 kiloelectronvolts (keV).
One megaelectronvolt (MeV) is equal to 1,000,000 electronvolts (eV). The electronvolt is the kinetic energy gained by a free electron when it travels through a potential difference of one volt.
The megaelectronvolt is used in physics for measuring the energies of elementary particles.
The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
Also known as:
megaelectron-volt (plural: megaelectron-volts), mega-electron volt (plural: mega-electron volts)
