Enter the total amps and watts into the calculator. The calculator will display the resulting volts from the sources.
Amp to Volt Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the total number of volts from amps and watts.
V = P / I
- Where V is volts
- P is watts
- and I is amps
Amp to Volt Definition
Converting amps to volts is the process of dividing the total watts by the total amps to yield total volts.
Amp to Volt Example
How to calculate volts
- First, determine the total power of the circuit or system
Power in electric terms is measured in watts.
- Next, determine the current of the system
This is typically measured in amps.
- Calculate the voltage
Calculate the total number of volts using the watts and amps found in steps 1 and 2.
Voltage is a measure of electrical force in a system. It can also be conceptualized as an electric potential of a system.
Current is the speed, also known as rate, that an electric charge flows through an object. Therefore, the volts can be calculated through the rate and power = potential.
