# Convert 500 mv to kv

In this article I will show you how to convert 500 millivolts into kilovolts. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 500 mv to kv. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Millivolts to Kilovolts

A millivolt is smaller than a kilovolt. I know that a mv is smaller than a kv 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 500 millivolts into kilovolts, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mv to kv is:

1 mv = 1.0E-6 kv

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 500 mv to kv by multiplying `1.0E-6` by the number of millivolts we have, which is 500.

500 x 1.0E-6 = 0.0005 kv

So, the answer to the question "what is 500 millivolts in kilovolts?" is 0.0005 kv.

## Best Conversion Unit for 500 mv

Sometimes when you work with conversions from one unit to another, the numbers can get a little confusing. Especially when dealing with really large numbers.

I've also calculated what the best unit of measurement is for 500 mv.

To determine which unit is best, I decided to define that as being the unit of measurement which is as low as possible, without going below 1. Smaller numbers are more easily understood and can make it easier for you to understand the measurement.

The best unit of measurement I have found for 500 mv is millivolts and the amount is 500 mv.
