What is mega-electron volt?

The megaelectronvolt (or mega-electron volt) 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.
