Voltage \Vol"tage\, n. (Elec.) Electric potential or potential difference, expressed in volts.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
"electromotive force reckoned in volts," 1882, from volt + -age.
n. 1 (context physics English) The difference in electrostatic potential between two points in space. 2 The potential difference between live conductors and neutral conductors or the earth in a system when in operation.
Voltage, electric potential difference, '''electric pressure ''' or electric tension (formally denoted or , but more often simply as V or U, for instance in the context of Ohm's or Kirchhoff's laws) is the difference in electric potential energy between two points per unit electric charge. The voltage between two points is equal to the work done per unit of charge against a static electric field to move the test charge between two points and is measured in units of volts (a joule per coulomb).
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. A voltmeter can be used to measure the voltage (or potential difference) between two points in a system; often a common reference potential such as the ground of the system is used as one of the points. A voltage may represent either a source of energy ( electromotive force), or lost, used, or stored energy ( potential drop).
Voltage (abbreviated ∆V) is the term for the difference in electric potential energy. It may also refer to:
