## What is Voltage?

In simple words, Voltage is the “pressure or force” that pushes electricity (electrons) between two points in an electric circuit. Voltage is measured in volts.

## What is Current?

Current is the rate of the flow of electrons in a circuit. It's measured in amperes and denoted by using the letter "I."

## What is power?

Power is a measure of the rate at which energy is transferred or converted in a circuit. The power used in a circuit is measured in watts. Watts are calculated by multiplying the voltage by the current.

It can be calculated using different formulas depending on the known quantities. The most common formula for calculating electrical power (P) is based on Ohm's Law:

*P=V*I*
Where:

**P** stands for power (in watts, W).
**V** stands for voltage (in volts, V).
**I** stands for current (in amperes, A).

### What is Ohm's Law?

One of the fundamental laws in electronics, Ohm's Law states that the electric current is proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance.

**$V=I×R$**
Where:

**V** stands for voltage (in volts).
**I** stands for current (in amperes).
**R** stands for resistance (in ohms). [Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit.]

### How to Convert V to kV?

To convert volts to kilovolts, just divide the number of volts by 1000.for example If you have 5000 volts, you divide it by 1000 to get the equivalent value in kilovolts

Check out our video tutorial for volts to kilovolts conversion

**1 V = 10**^{-3} kV = 0.001 kV

or

**1 kV = 10**^{3} V = 1000 V

5000V/1000=5kV

So, 5000 volts is equal to 5 kilovolts

### Formula to covert Volts to kilovolts

The conversion formula is:

**V**_{(kV)} = V_{(V)}/1000

#### Example

Convert 22000 Volts to kilovolts:

V_{(kV)} = 22000/1000 = 22 kV
