In the International System of Units, the derived unit of electrical potential and electromotive force (voltage); the potential difference across a conductor when a current of one ampere uses one watt of power. Symbol: V

Ampverb

To amplify.

‘He asked the disk jockey to amp it up.’;

Ampnoun

the basic unit of electric current adopted under the Systeme International d'Unites;

‘a typical household circuit carries 15 to 50 amps’;

Voltnoun

A sudden movement to avoid a thrust.

Ampnoun

a nucleotide found in muscle cells and important in metabolism; reversibly convertible to ADP and ATP

Voltnoun

The unit of electro-motive force; - defined by the International Electrical Congress in 1893 and by United States Statute as, that electro-motive force which steadily applied to a conductor whose resistance is one ohm will produce a current of one ampère. It is practically equivalent to

Voltnoun

a unit of potential equal to the potential difference between two points on a conductor carrying a current of 1 ampere when the power dissipated between the two points is 1 watt; equivalent to the potential difference across a resistance of 1 ohm when 1 ampere of current flows through it

Voltnoun

the SI unit of electromotive force, the difference of potential that would carry one ampere of current against one ohm resistance.

Voltnoun

variant spelling of volte

Voltverb

make a quick movement to avoid a thrust.

Volt

The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force. It is named after the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745–1827).
