About mega-electron volt

The mega-electron volt, or megaelectronvolt, is a unit of energy equal to 1.60217656535 × 10-13 joules (1 MeV = 1.60217656535 × 10-13 J), the SI derived unit of energy.

The mega-electron volt (MeV) is also equal to 1.60217656535 × 10-4 nanojoules (nJ), or 1.60217656535 × 10-10 millijoules (mJ), or 1.60217656535 × 10-16 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.
