#### Volts to Gigavolts

It is voltage conversion calculator that converts Volts (V) to Gigavolts (GV). Volt is defined as the potential difference across a conductor where the current of a single ampere dissipates one watt of power. The SI prefix ‘Giga’ is an exponential notation that represents a factor of 109. The Volts to Gigavolts conversion calculator has been programmed to give accurate results within a single click of a button. It has a blank text field where you enter the voltage in Volts. The ‘Convert’ button will initiate the conversion to Gigavolts and your results will be shown in the bottom platform below the two controls.

To convert a volt measurement to a gigavolt measurement, divide the voltage by the conversion ratio.

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

gigavolts = volts ÷ 1,000,000,000

The voltage in gigavolts is equal to the volts divided by 1,000,000,000.

#### For example

Here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 volts to gigavolts using the formula above.

5,000,000,000 V = (5,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 5 GV

Volts and gigavolts are both units used to measure voltage.

#### 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.

#### Gigavolts

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

The gigavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV; for example, 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.
