Hello,
I found a mistake on the page: /convert/power/megawatttogigajouleperhour (at the top of the page in blue frame).
It is: GJ/h = 3.6 MW and MW = 0.2777777778 GJ/h.
It should be: MW = 3.6 GJ/h and GJ/h = 0.2777777778 MW.
The calculations in the table are correct.
Best Regards

Re: Problem with conversion MW >GJ/h
Hello Gvalch'ca,
Welcome to the forum, and thank you for your post!
The upper right frame does not have GJ/h = 3.6 MW and MW = 0.2777777778 GJ/h.
Instead, the frame shows the conversion formulas from megawatt to gigajoule per hour, and gigajoule per hour to megawatt:
Please note the multiplication sign [ × ] in between the numbers and the corresponding unit.
Example 1. How many gigajoule per hour is equal to 7 megawatts? 3.6 (megawatt) × 7 = 25.2 (gigajoule per hour)
Example 2. How many megawatt is equal to 5 (gigajoule per hour)? 0.2777777778 (gigajoule per hour) × 5 = 1.388888889 megawatts.
Best regards,
Alex.

Instead, the frame shows the conversion formulas from megawatt to gigajoule per hour, and gigajoule per hour to megawatt:
Code: Select all
GJ/h = 3.6 × MW and MW = 0.2777777778 × GJ/h
Example 1. How many gigajoule per hour is equal to 7 megawatts? 3.6 (megawatt) × 7 = 25.2 (gigajoule per hour)
Example 2. How many megawatt is equal to 5 (gigajoule per hour)? 0.2777777778 (gigajoule per hour) × 5 = 1.388888889 megawatts.
Best regards,
