Noun(1) a unit of potential equal to the potential difference between two points on a conductor carrying a current of 1 ampere when the power dissipated between the two points is 1 watt; equivalent to the potential difference across a resistance of 1 ohm when 1 ampere of current flows through it
(1) It is defined as the energy lost or gained by an electron as it passes through a potential difference of one volt .(2) A 19 year old man suffered serious burns after climbing 30 feet up an electricity pylon carrying 30,000 volts .(3) This a distribution power line, and the utility crews have told me that these sorts of lines normally carry 7,600 volts of electricity.(4) The characteristic voltage is about 2 volts per cell, so by combining six cells you get a 12-volt battery.(5) Once it's charged, the capacitor has the same voltage as the battery (1.5 volts on the battery means 1.5 volts on the capacitor).(6) A news report said the line carried 13,000 volts of electricity.(7) The car's inverter voltage was increased from 500 volts to 550 volts and the petrol engine's electronic management system was altered to allow it to rev higher.(8) If only amperage is listed, the formula to determine watts is: amps times volts equal watts.(9) These cables carry in the order of 13,000 volts of electricity.(10) Invented in 1985, modern-day magnetic stimulators charge up to a whopping 3,000 volts and produce peak currents of up to 8,000 amps - powers similar to those of a small nuclear reactor.(11) Noise signal out is generally given in amps per Hz or volts per Hz.(12) Lightening is a discharge of static electricity that ├ö├ç├┐contains├ö├ç├û millions of volts of potential difference and many thousands of amps of electrical current.(13) Because powerlines are typically 400,000 volts, and Earth is at an electrical potential of zero volts , pylons create electric fields between the cables they carry and the ground.(14) As discussed previously, voltage is measured in volts , and current is measured in amps.(15) He strongly favours fencing along a straight line, disapproving of ├ö├ç├┐ volting ├ö├ç├┐, crossing the legs, and all the tricks which were favoured with the ancients.├ö├ç├û(16) Like 220 volts of current being forced through a 110-volt kitchen appliance, the system is becoming overloaded, and the smoke is rising.
