Enter the total current (amps) and the total voltage (volts) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Amp Per Volt. 

Amp Per Volt Formula

APV = I / V


  • APV is the Amp Per Volt (amps/volt)
  • I is the total current (amps)
  • V is the total voltage (volts)

To calculate Amp Per Volt, divide the total current by the total voltage.

How to Calculate Amp Per Volt?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Amp Per Volt.

  1. First, determine the total current (amps). 
  2. Next, determine the total voltage (volts). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = APV = I / V.
  4. Finally, calculate the Amp Per Volt.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total current (amps) = 124

total voltage (volts) = 50


What does Amp Per Volt (APV) indicate in electrical terms?

APV is a measure of electric conductance or how easily electricity flows through a component or circuit. It indicates the amount of current (in amps) that flows through a circuit per unit of voltage (in volts).

Why is it important to calculate Amp Per Volt?

Calculating Amp Per Volt is crucial for designing and analyzing electrical circuits. It helps in understanding the efficiency of electrical components and ensuring that circuits are safe and operate within their intended parameters.

Can Amp Per Volt be used to calculate power consumption?

While Amp Per Volt itself does not directly indicate power consumption, it can be part of the calculations. Power (in watts) is the product of current (in amps) and voltage (in volts), so understanding the relationship between current and voltage is essential for calculating power consumption.

How does voltage affect the Amp Per Volt value?

Since Amp Per Volt is calculated as current divided by voltage, an increase in voltage will result in a decrease in the Amp Per Volt value, assuming the current remains constant. Conversely, a decrease in voltage will increase the Amp Per Volt value.
