### Volt

Unit of electrical pressure which causes current to flow. Voltage is a measure of the rate at which electricity is moving. Calculation: Voltage = Current (Amps) x Resistance (Ohms). One volt drives a current of one amp through a resistance of one ohm. Current in a wire is driven by voltage in roughly the same way that water in your pipes is driven ...

### volt

The standard unit of potential difference or electromotive force, named after Alessandro Volta. One volt is the potential difference across a conductor when a current of one ampere dissipates one watt of power. The volt is the standard unit of voltage: the force, or pressure, of electricity.

### Volt

The (electrical) potential difference between two points in a circuit. The fundamental unit is derived as work per unit charge-(V = W/Q). One volt is the potential difference required to move one coulomb of charge between two points in a circuit while using one joule of energy.
