### Which leg is 208 on 3 phase power?

On three phase 208 volts one leg does not have the potential of 208 volts. It takes two legs to provide the 208 volts. The potential is across AB, BC and CA. Voltage to the grounded neutral A-N, B-N and C-N will produce a potential of 120 volts. In a wye configured secondary three phase four wire you have the potential of 120/208 volts.

It takes a potential of about 20,000 volts to see of feel. The human body can accumulate a potential of about 25,000 volts or more.

### How many volts are in a nanometer?

Volts represents difference of potential and nanometers are distance. There is no coorelation.

### Who invented the volts?

Alessandro volta Answer No-one 'invented' volts. The name 'volt' was adopted by an international committee as the unit for potential and potential difference in honour of Allessadro Volta!

### What metal has the highest negative potential?

Lithium has the highest negative potential of -3.045 volts

### Amp meter is showing 208 volts I need 240 volts?

There is some equipment that will operate on 208 volts even though it is rated to be use 240 volts. See discuss question below.

### What is meant by volts?

Volts is the unit to measure the potential difference between any two points in an electrical circuit. Without Potential Difference there cant be any flow of current.

### What potential will you have with 120 volts and 277 volts in same encloser?

The potential for someone to come along later on and get the wires mixed up causing damage to electrical appliances or lights.

### What is electric potential in between twooppositely charged plates?

The electric potential difference is measured in volts. The amount of volts will depend on what kind of plates and the solution which the plates have been put in to.

### How many volts comes out of the average outlet?

In North America the potential at a receptacle for appliances is 120 volts.

### What is the definition of potential defference?

The difference, measured in volts, in electric potential between two points.

### The potential difference between two points is measured in?

If you are talking about electrical potential, that would be "volts".

### What is meant by 0.3 volts for germanium and 0.7 volts for silicon?

== When we make a semiconductor junction (a p-n junction), the electric fields force charges to shift creating what is called a depletion region. This depletion region forms a potential barrier across the junction. This potential barrier has a voltage associated with it, and that voltage is 0.3 volts (approximately) for germanium semiconductor material, and 0.7 volts (approximately) for silicon semiconductor. The terms we apply to this barrier potential are the built-in voltage (or potential)… Read More

### What is potential of ground potential?

By general agreement, it is conventional to think of ground, or earth, as being at zero volts.

### This type of potential is a brief electrical impulse produced by ions crossing the axon membrane?

action potential

### If the potential difference across the battery is 6 volts what is the potential difference across the bulb?

Assuming there are no other circuit elements, such as resistances, then (by Kirchoff's Laws) the voltage across the bulb will also be 6 volts.

### How many amps to equal 24 volts?

Volts represents potential and amps is the flow of electrons. The relationship is by Ohm's Law which says Volts = Amps x Resistance.

### Difference is measured in volts?

Potential (difference) is measured in volts. Difference in height is measured in inches, or cm if you like metric.

### What is the Difference between 3.6 to 3.7 volts?

The difference between 3.6 to 3.7 volts is .1 volt of higher potential.

### Are volts and voltage the same thing?

Voltage is a potential difference, which may be measured in volts, the volt being a unit of measure.

### Which unit is used when measuring electrial potential?

Potential difference is measured in Volts (shown as (V) or sometimes (E))

### What is the SI unit for volts?

Volts are in SI electric potential difference, electromotive force voltVW/Am2·kg·s-3·A-1

### How many amps in 240 volts?

The question is not relevant. 240 volts refers to the "potential", and amps refers to the current. Potential * current = watts, or energy. You can have 240 volts at 1 amp, which will result in 240 watts, or you can have 240 amps at 1 volt which would also result in 240 watts.

electric potential energy is the energy a charged particle holds, which is measured in joules. electric potential is the potential a charged particle has, such as 4 volts.

### What unit is used to measure electrical potential?

Potential is measured in volts. The potential at any point is always measured with respect to another point, such as (but not necessarily) earth. So, if the potential at point A measures, say, +12 V with respect to earth, and the potential at point B measures, say, -12 V with respect to earth, then the potential difference between points A and B is +12 V - (-12 V), or 24 volts.
