 # Electric Field Strength Converter

Electric Field Strength, also known as electric field intensity, refers to the force experienced by a charged particle in an electric field. It is a vector quantity represented by the symbol E and is measured in volts per meter (V/m). Electric field strength is a crucial concept in electrical engineering and physics as it helps us understand the interaction between electric charges and their surrounding environment.

When an electric charge is present, it creates an electric field around itself. The electric field strength at any point in the field is determined by the magnitude and direction of the charge. It is essential to be able to measure and express electric field strength in different units to make it more comprehensible and applicable across various scenarios.

Below are the commonly used units for expressing electric field strength and their conversion factors:

• Volt / meter (V/m): The volt per meter is the SI unit for electric field strength. It represents the electric field strength in volts experienced by a charged particle at a distance of one meter from a point charge.
Conversion Factor: 1 V/m = 1 V/m (Base Unit)

• Kilovolt / meter (kV/m): One kilovolt per meter is equlal to one thousand volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 kV/m = 1,000 V/m

• Millivolt / meter (mV/m): One millivolt per meter is equal to one-thousandth of a volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 mV/m = 0.001 V/m

• Microvolt/meter (μV/m): One microvolt per meter is equal to one-millionth of a volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 μV/m = 0.000001 V/m

• Volt / centimeter (V/cm): One volt per centimeter is equal to 100 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 V/cm = 100 V/m

• Kilovolt / centimeter (kV/cm): One kilovolt per centimeter is equal to 10,000 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 kV/cm = 10,000 V/m

• Volt / inch (V/in): One volt per inch is equal to 39.3701 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 V/in = 39.37 V/m

• Kilovolt / inch (kV/in): One kilovolt per inch is equal to 39370 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 kV/in = 39,370.1 V/m

• Volt / mil (V/mil): One volt per mil (or millimeter) is equal to 1,000 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 V/mil = 1,000 V/m

• Abvolt / centimeter (abV/cm): The Abvolt is a CGS unit of electric potential. One abvolt per centimeter is equal to one-millionth of a volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 abV/cm = 0.000001 V/m

• Statvolt / centimeter (statV/cm): The statvolt is another CGS unit of electric potential. One statvolt per centimeter is equal to 29979 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 statV/cm = 29,979 V/m

• Statvolt / inch (statV/in): One statvolt per inch is equal to 0.3937 statvolt per centimeter, or 11803 volt per meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 statV/in = 0.3937 statV/in = 11,803 V/m

• Newton / coulomb (N/C): One newton per coulomb is equivalent to one volt per meter. Conversion Factor: 1 N/C = 1 V/m

When working with different units, it is crucial to keep track of the conversion factors and ensure that the units align correctly in your calculations. This converter provides a quick and accurate way to achieve that, saving time and reducing the risk of errors.
