Enter the peak voltage into the calculate to determine the root means square of a sinusoidal voltage.

## VRMS Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate the root mean square voltage of a sinusoidal periodic voltage.

VRMS = V_{peak} * .7071

- Where VRMS is the root mean square voltage
- Vpeak is the peak voltage

## VRMS Definition

VRMS stands for root mean square voltage and it is a measure of the average voltage of the root mean of a sine wave voltage.

## FAQ

**What is VRMS?**

VRMS stands for root mean square voltage. It’s a measure of the the peak voltage of a sinusoidal periodic voltage source times 1/sqrt(2) (aka root mean). It’s often described as the amount of AC power required to produce the same heat effect of DC power at the peak voltage.
