Electrical units definitions
Volt (V)
Volt is the electrical unit of voltage.
One volt is the energy of 1 joule that is consumed when electric charge of 1 coulomb flows in the circuit.
1V = 1J / 1C
Ampere (A)
Ampere is the electrical unit of electrical current. It measures the amount of electrical charge that flows in an electrical circuit per 1 second.
1A = 1C / 1s
Ohm (Ω)
Ohm is the electrical unit of resistance.
1Ω = 1V / 1A
Watt (W)
Watt is the electrical unit of electric power. It measures the rate of consumed energy.
1W = 1J / 1s
1W = 1V ⋅ 1A
Decibelmilliwatt (dBm)
Decibelmilliwatt or dBm is a unit of electric power, measured with logarithmic scale referenced to 1mW.
10dBm = 10 ⋅ log_{10}(10mW / 1mW)
DecibelWatt (dBW)
Decibelwatt or dBW is a unit of electric power, measured with logarithmic scale referenced to 1W.
10dBW = 10 ⋅ log_{10}(10W / 1W)
Farad (F)
Farad is the unit of capacitance. It represents the amount of electric charge in coulombs that is stored per 1 volt.
1F = 1C / 1V
Henry (H)
Henry is the unit of inductance.
1H = 1Wb / 1A
siemens (S)
siemens is the unit of conductance, which is the opposite of resistance.
1S = 1 / 1Ω
Coulomb (C)
Coulomb is the unit of electric charge.
1C = 6.238792×10^{18} electron charges
Amperehour (Ah)
Amperehour is a unit of electric charge.
One amperehour is the electric charge that flow in electrical circuit, when a current of 1 ampere is applied for 1 hour.
1Ah = 1A ⋅ 1hour
One amperehour is equal to 3600 coulombs.
1Ah = 3600C
Tesla (T)
Tesla is the unit of magnetic field.
1T = 1Wb / 1m^{2}
Weber (Wb)
Weber is the unit of magnetic flux.
1Wb = 1V ⋅ 1s
Joule (J)
Joule is the unit of energy.
1J = 1 kg ⋅ 1(m / s)^{2}
Kilowatthour (kWh)
Kilowatthour is a unit of energy.
1kWh = 1kW ⋅ 1h = 1000W ⋅ 1h
Kilovoltamps (kVA)
Kilovoltamps is a unit of power.
1kVA = 1kV ⋅ 1A = 1000 ⋅ 1V ⋅ 1A
Hertz (Hz)
Hertz is the unit of frequency. It measures the number of cycles per second.
1 Hz = 1 cycles / s
