# Convert watt to kilowatt

## What is a watt?

Watt is a metric for power evaluation. It got its name after the eponymous physicist, who devoted his time and effort to this area of science. Before the introduction of this option in the late XIX century, for this purpose, horsepower was utilized. Interestingly, it was designed by the same scientist. Still, later the standard system switched to watts.

Modern watt (W) has a meaning of power at which the 1-Joule work is performed during one second. The common abbreviation is W. Many derivatives with common prefixes like kilo- and giga- are utilized in practice.

The evaluation of power in these terms serves as a key characteristic of devices that run on thermal or electrical energy. You can easily find watts on the packaging of the device, which gives the general understanding of its capacity. Thus, everything that is related to thermal or electrical power can be described using this metric.

## What is a kilowatt?

Watts were introduced in general practice at the end of the XIC century and replaced the horsepower that was utilized for the same purpose. Nowadays, this metric is the basic for the evaluation of mechanical, electrical and thermal power and corresponds to the work of 1 Joule performed during one second.

As modern devices are often large and quite productive, they have a very large amount of power, for which 8-digit and sometimes 10-digit numbers are needed. To make the designations and calculations more convenient, different derived quantities were introduced, for instance, kilowatts (kW).

One kilowatt corresponds to 1000 watts. Numerous devices are labelled with Kilowatts as a more common option. In order to transform the given number into usual watts, one needs just to multiply by 1000.

Hectowatts and terawatts are also utilized to denote large quantities. For the smaller options, microWatt, nanoWatt, picoWatt are used.

## How to Convert watt to kilowatt

Converting Watts Into Kilowatts is a straightforward methodology as they are both elements of power, with "kilo" representing a factor of 1,000. Here's how you might accomplish it:

- Understand the Units: Watts is the base power unit in the International System of Units (SI). Kilowatts are multiple watts, where 1 kW equals 1,000 W.
- Operate the Instructions: The instructions to transform Watt to Kilowatt are straightforward: kW = W / 1000.

Where:

- kW - power in kilowatts.
- W - power in watts.

## How many watt in kilowatt

A 1 W to kW is analogous to 1,000 W. Watts as the base power element, while kilowatts symbolize a more comprehensive unit where 1 kW equals 1,000 W. For illustration, 2 kW is identical to 2,000 W, and 5 kW is analogous to 5,000 W. Kilowatts are typically employed in everyday applications to describe electrical power, such as the power rating of appliances or the capacity of electrical methods, due to their more manageable digits for helpful service.
