Electric Potential Converter

Electric potential, also known as "voltage", is a fundamental concept in the field of electrical engineering and physics. It represents the amount of electric potential energy that a unit charge (positive or negative) possesses at a given point in an electric field. Electric potential is measured in various units depending on the application, and it is crucial to understand how to convert between these units accurately. In this article, we will explore the Electric Potential Converter tool and the units it supports.

  • Volt (V): The volt is the unit of electric potential, electric potential difference, and electromotive force in the International System of Units (SI). A volt is the electric potential difference across a conductor when a current of one ampere results in a power dissipation of one watt.
    Conversion Factor: 1 V = 1 V (Base Unit)

  • Kilovolt (kV): One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts.
    Conversion Factor: 1 kV = 1,000 V

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

  • Microvolt (μV): A microvolt is one-millionth of a volt.
    Conversion Factor: 1 μV = 0.000001 V

  • Watt / Ampere (W/A): A watt per ampere is the ratio of power (in watts) to current (in amperes). It is equivalent to volt.
    Conversion Factor: 1 W/A = 1 V

  • Abvolt (abV): The abvolt is a CGS unit of electric potential. One abvolt is equal to 1/100,000,000 volts.
    Conversion Factor: 1 abV = 0.00000001 V

  • EMU of Electric Potential (EMU): The electromagnetic unit of electric potential is equivalent to abvolt.
    Conversion Factor: 1 EMU = 1 abV

  • Statvolt (statV): The statvolt is another CGS unit of electric potential. One statvolt is equal to 299.79 volts.
    Conversion Factor: 1 statV ≈ 299.79 V

  • ESU of Electric Potential (ESU): The electrostatic unit of electric potential is equivalent to statvolt.
    Conversion Factor: 1 ESU = 1 statV

Understanding electric potential and its various units is crucial for electrical engineers, physicists, and anyone working with electrical systems. The Electric Potential Converter tool makes it easier to convert electric potential values between different units accurately. Whether you're dealing with kilovolts, volts, millivolts, microvolts, or other less common units like abvolts or statvolts, the converter simplifies the process and enhances the efficiency of your electrical calculations.
