<unit> A general unit of energy of moving particles, equal to the kinetic energy acquired by an electron losing one volt of potential, equal to 1.602 x 10-19 J. ... This is the energy an electron (or other particle of charge=1 such as a proton), gains as it is accelerated through a potential difference of 1 volt. In plasma physics the electro
