Enter the total number of milliamps (ma) and the total resistance (ohms) into the calculator to determine the Voltage from MA. 

Voltage from MA Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Voltage from MA. 

V = ma/1000 * R

Variables:

  • Where V is the Voltage from MA (volts)
  • ma is the total number of milliamps (ma) 
  • R is the total resistance (ohms) 

How to Calculate Voltage from MA?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Voltage from MA.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of milliamps (ma). In this example, the total number of milliamps (ma) is measured to be 500.
  2. Next, determine the total resistance (ohms). For this problem, the total resistance (ohms) is calculated to be 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the Voltage from MA using the formula above: 

V = ma/1000 * R

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

V = 500/1000 * 4 = 2 (volts)


Example Problem #2: 

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

total number of milliamps (ma) = 3000

total resistance (ohms) = 10

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us:: 

V = 3000/1000 * 10 = 30 (volts)
