Freebase

  1. Voltage

    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

  1. Voltage

    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.

Examples of voltage in a Sentence

  1. David Clarke:

    When you apply a voltage to them relative to some background there is an attractive force between the nanowires and the substrate that deforms the elastomer, elastomer rubber is very soft and so the surface becomes rough, and it is that roughness that scatters light.

  2. Damion Martins:

    Even at the young age, the heart is a muscle...there are 16-year-olds that can have an enlarged heart from muscle, so it looks like an athlete EKG. It has higher voltage. Pediatricians say this is abnormal, but a sports medicine specialist would say that's the typical pattern of a trained athlete, untrained physicians overcall abnormality and that leads to further testing.

  3. Livia Eberlin:

    What’s been developed before has either been for ex vivo tissue analysis, with solvents that are not compatible, or using high pressure nitrogen or high voltage that’s not compatible with living tissue.
