#### Kilovolts to Volts

A Kilovolt is a unit of Voltage in the metric System. It has the symbol kV. A Kilovolt has 1,000 Volts.A Volt is a unit of Voltage in the metric System. It has the symbol V. A Volt has 0.001 Kilovolts.

To convert a kilovolt measurement to a volt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

volts = kilovolts × 1,000

The voltage in volts is equal to the kilovolts multiplied by 1,000.

#### For example

here's how to convert 5 kilovolts to volts using the formula above.

5 kV = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 V

#### How Many Volts are in a Kilovolt?

There are 1,000 volts in a kilovolt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kV = 1,000 V

#### Kilovolts

One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV; for example, 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.

#### Volts

Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor. One volt is equal to the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The volt is the SI derived unit for voltage in the metric system. Volts can be abbreviated as V; for example, 1 volt can be written as 1 V.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the potential difference in volts as an expression using current and resistance.

VV = IA × R

The potential difference in volts is equal to the current in amperes times the resistance in ohms.
