## Potential Voltage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Potential Voltage.

**Vp = IC * RC**

- Where Vp is the Potential Voltage (volts)
- IC is the circuit current (a)
- RC is the circuit resistance (ohms)

## How to Calculate Potential Voltage?

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

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the circuit current (a). In this example, the circuit current (a) is measured to be 50.
- Next, determine the circuit resistance (ohms). For this problem, the circuit resistance (ohms) is calculated to be 20.
- Finally, calculate the Potential Voltage using the formula above:

Vp = IC * RC

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

Vp = 50 * 20 = 100 (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:

circuit current (a) = 90

circuit resistance (ohms) = 3

Entering these values into the formula above gives :

Vp = 90 * 3 = 270 (volts)
