Designation for one million.

Prefix for one million, e.g. megawatt (MWe) = 1,000,000 watts. Commercial nuclear reactors today have power outputs in the range 600 to 1300 MWe.

A prefix derived from the Greek word for big and generally meaning 1,000,000, but somewhat greater in computer memories and disks. See MEGABYTE

(M) = million = 1,000,000 = 10 (see Micros, Millis, Megas and Measurements)

Gr. megas: large, great] • A prefix often used to denote something large. (Contrast with micro-.)

10 to the power of 6, or 1 million. So a megalitre of water is 1 million litres. Melbourne's Thomson Dam holds 1,068,000 megalitres.

One million, but with computers it typically means 1,048,576 (1,024 times 1,024).

(1) A Greek word meaning one million. (2) A prefix in the international system of measurements; for example: megabytes, that is one million bytes (106).

1) The prefix for 1,000,000. 2) Computers: short for megahertz (1,000,000 Hertz) or megabytes (1,000,000 Bytes).

Unit qualifier (symbol = M) representing one million, or 106. For example, 3MHz stands for 3 x 106 Hertz.

Prefix meaning "million" (see kilo-)

the prefix mega indicates a multiplier of one million. Hence a megawatt is one million watts and a megametre is one million metres.

Mega is an SI prefix in the SI system of units denoting 106 or 1 000 000. Confirmed in 1960, it comes from the Greek Î¼ÎÎ³Î±Ã§, meaning great. For example, 1 MW (megawatt) = 1 000 000 watts = 1 000 kilowatts. Abbreviation

106 (as in megahertz, MHz); one million.

In general means one million (in precise computer terms is 1,048,576).

Million = 1,000,000 = 106

Metric prefix meaning one million, or 1,000,000.

(M) mega. SI prefix meaning "multiply by 106". For example, 3.2 MJ is 3200000 J.

Prefix conventionally meaning "thousand", in computers sometimes a megabyte can refer to either to 1,024 kilobytes or exactly one million bytes.

Mega is the prefix for million. Example - 20 megabytes = 20,000,000 bytes.

Multiplier indicating that a quantity should be multiplied by 1,000,000.

A prefix meaning million. For example: one million Hertz is 1 megahertz, abbreviated 1 MHz.

A prefix, abbreviated "M", used to denote units of millions, 10. One "Mega" is equal to one million. In our industry, one Megahertz is a frequency of one million hertz (cycles per second).

A factor of one million. Therefore, a megalitre of water is one million litres. Melbourne's Thomson Reservoir holds 1,068,000 million litres.

A numerical prefix denoting one million (106).

Mega is the greek prefix that means "large", but is often used to denote "million", as in megabyte, megabit, megawatt, etc. Since computers use the binary number system, a "mega" in the computer world is actually 1,048,576 (2 20). See also Kilo.
