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.
