Megaelectron–volt to all other Energy conversions

Megaelectron–volt

A MeV is the Mega electron-volt, e.g. million times more than eV. One eV is defined as the energy, that an electron ( or an other single charged (q=1.6*10^-19 Coulombs) particle) gains when it undergoes a potential difference of 1 Volt. In the International units ( SI units) 1eV corresponds to 1.6*10^-19 Joules.

According to Einstein's formula E=mc^2, energy is equivalent to mass (and vice versa), up to the c^2 constant. In SI units, mass is in kilograms , and the speed of light is 3*10^8 m/s.

Therefore, 1eV energy corresponds to m=(1.6*10^-19 Joules)/(9*10^16 m/s)= 1.8*10^-36 Kg=1.8*10^-33 grams. Then 3.2 MeV corresponds to 3.2*10^6*1.8*10^-33 grams=5.7*10^-27 grams. Just as an illustration , the 3.2 MeV mass is roughly 6 times more than the rest mass of an electron.

Therefore, 1eV energy corresponds to m=(1.6*10^-19 Joules)/(9*10^16 m/s)= 1.8*10^-36 Kg=1.8*10^-33 grams.
