electromotive force or potential difference expressed in volts.
Category: Electricity and Magnetism
Origin of voltage:
voltage, electromotive force, emf(noun)
the rate at which energy is drawn from a source that produces a flow of electricity in a circuit; expressed in volts
electric potential, potential, potential difference, potential drop, voltage(noun)
the difference in electrical charge between two points in a circuit expressed in volts
Kernerman English Learner's Dictionary
how much power there is in an electric current
The amount of electrostatic potential between two points in space.
electric potential or potential difference, expressed in volts
Voltage, electrical potential difference, or an electric tension is the electric potential difference between two points, or the difference in electric potential energy of a unit test charge transported between two points. Voltage is equal to the work done per unit charge against a static electric field to move the charge between two points. A voltage may represent either a source of energy, or lost, used, or stored energy. A voltmeter can be used to measure the voltage between two points in a system; usually a common reference potential such as the ground of the system is used as one of the points. Voltage can be caused by static electric fields, by electric current through a magnetic field, by time-varying magnetic fields, or some combination of these three.
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
Potential difference or electro-motive force expressed in volts; as a voltage of 100 volts. Thus voltage may express the electro-motive force absorbed in a conductor, while electro-motive force is a term generally applied where it is produced, evolved or present in the object. The term voltage of a lamp expresses simply the volts required, but does not suggest the possession of electromotive force.
