## volt

(V) [vōlt]the SI unit of electric potential or electromotive force, equal to 1 watt per ampere, or 1 joule per coulomb.

**electron volt**(eV) a unit of energy equal to the energy acquired by an electron in being accelerated through a potential difference of 1 volt; equal to 1.602 × 10

^{−19}joule.

**gigaelectron volt**(GeV) one billion electron volts (10

^{9}eV).
