# The electron volt is a unit of?

The eV (Electron Volt) is a unit both of mass and energy. It is used as a mass unit in particle physics, for the most part. Generally, you will hear it as a unit of energy. On…e eV is equal to the energy gained by one single unbound electron passing through an electrostatic potential difference of one volt. But what does this mean? To most people, measureing in eV, or even TeV (Tera electron volts = trillion electron volts) is completely impractical. You walking across the floor has trillions of trillions of electron volts, or maybe even more. This measurement is only used for very small things, hence the electron! To sum it up, th eV is a measurement of the energy that an electron has.

# Is volt a SI base unit?

No it is not. A volt is a joule divided by a coulomb, it is m 2 âkgâs â3 âA â1

# What is not an SI base unit -- a second an ampere a volt or a kelvin?

All SI base units: Base quantity..........................Name........Symbol length......................................meter........m mass...................................….....kilogram....kg time.........................................second......s electric current........................ampere. ....A thermodynamic temperature....kelvin........K amount of substance...............mole..........mol luminous intensity....................candela.....cd There are no "volts" to find. Volts are a derived SI unit, not a base one.

# The volt is the unit of electric?

potential difference.

# Is a volt an SI base unit?

No the SI base units are: .
metre for length .
kilogram for mass .
second for time .
ampere for electric current .
kelvin for temperature .
candela for luminous intens…ity .
mole for the amount of substance. Voltage is derived from the base units, metre, kilogram, seconds and ampere. V = m 2 Â·kgÂ·s â3 Â·A â1 Definition of voltage The voltage between two ends of a path is the total energy required to move a small electric charge along that path, divided by the magnitude of the charge . V = J/C where: J=m 2 Â·kgÂ·s â2 C=sÂ·A V = (m 2 Â·kgÂ·s â2 )/(sÂ·A) Thus: V = m 2 Â·kgÂ·s â3 Â·A â1 For more information look at the subject of "SI derived units"

# Why the units are volt amperes?

The units of power in AC reactive circuits are volt-amperes instead of watts because the voltage and current are not in phase with each other. Volt-amperes is a better indicat…ion of how much power a source such as a transformer is supplying, because watts will be less than volt-amperes due to power factor, but that energy still has to be supplied.
