The "watt" ... (and also the milliwatt, Kilowatt, Megawatt, Gigawatt) ... are rates or speedsof producing or using energy.One Watt means 1 joule of energy per second.2000 MegaWatts means 2000 Megajoules of energy per second.That's the rate or speed at which it produces energy. Continuously.If it runs for 1 hour at 2000 MW, it produces 7,200 Gigajoules of energy.If it runs for 1 day at 2000MW, it produces 172,800 Gigajoules of energy.and so on.

E = M c2We know the value of 'c'. In order to calculate 'E', we have to know 'M'.Water has a density of 1 gram per milliliter. A milliliter is the same volume as a cm3.1 cubic meter = (1 meter)3 = (100 cm)3 = 106 cm3.So the mass of 1 cubic meter of water is 106 gram = 103 kilogram.If 103 kilograms of mass is entirely converted to energy, perhaps by means of thedilithium crystals in the ship's propulsion system, then the quantity of energy isE = M c2 = (103) x (3 x 108)2 = (103) x (9 x 1016) = 9 x 1019 joules.This is a fair amount of energy. I get 1 gigawatt for 2,852 years (rounded).

Gigawatts and kilowatts are units of power, and 1 gigawatt = 1 million kilowatts. Energy is measured in kilowatt-hours or gigawatt-hours, 1 gigawatt-hour = 1 million kilowatt-hours.

1 gigawatt = 1000 megawatts = 1,000,000 kilowatts = 1,000,000,000 watts.Or 1 gigawatt = 109 watts=========================================When 1 gigawatt is being generated or consumed, it meansthat 1 billion joules of energy are transferring every second.

1 gigawatt = 1 million kilowatts

There is 1 billion watts in a gigawatt

It is a GigaWatt aka 1 GW aka 1,000,000,000 W

Divide the kWh by 1 million

1000. A megawatt-hour is the energy you'd get with a megawatt of power for 1 hour. Energy = power * time. It's important to note that it's 'megawatt hour' and not megawatt/hour (ie. it's not megawatt per hour).A gigawatt has 1000 times the power of a megawatt. Thus, since the time is the same (both 1 hour), a gigawatt-hour = 1000 megawatt hours.

1,000,000,000

It's a question of scale. A gigaWatt is 1000 megaWatts, so if you subtract one, you are left with 999 megaWatts.

1,000.
