#### Volts to kilovolts

A volt is a unit of electric potential and electromotive force in the International System of Units (SI). The symbol for volt is V. There are 1,000 volts in a kilovolt. A kilovolt is a unit of electric potential and electromotive force in the International System of Units (SI). The symbol for kilovolt is kV. There are 0.001 kilovolts in a volt.

#### Quick conversion chart of volt to kV

1 volt to kV = 0.001 kV

10 volt to kV = 0.01 kV

50 volt to kV = 0.05 kV

100 volt to kV = 0.1 kV

200 volt to kV = 0.2 kV

500 volt to kV = 0.5 kV

1000 volt to kV = 1 kV

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

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

kilovolts = volts ÷ 1,000

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

#### For example

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

5,000 V = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 kV

Volts and kilovolts 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.

#### 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.
