n. Abbr. V
The SI-derived unit of electric potential and electromotive force, equal to the difference of electric potential between two points on a conducting wire carrying a constant current of one ampere when the power dissipated between the points is one watt. See Table at measurement.
[After Count Alessandro Volta.]
volt 2also volte (vōlt, vôlt)
1. A circular movement executed by a horse in manège.
2. A sudden movement made in avoiding a thrust in fencing.
[French volte, from Italian volta, turn, from voltare, to turn, leap; see vault2.]
(Units) the derived SI unit of electric potential; the potential difference between two points on a conductor carrying a current of 1 ampere, when the power dissipated between these points is 1 watt. Symbol: V
[C19: named after Count Alessandro Volta2]
1. (Horse Training, Riding & Manège) a small circle of determined size executed in dressage
2. (Fencing) a leap made in fencing to avoid an opponent's thrust
[C17: from French volte, from Italian volta a turn, ultimately from Latin volvere to turn]
the SI unit of potential difference and electromotive force, equal to the difference of electric potential between two points of a conductor carrying a constant current of one ampere, when the power dissipated between these points is equal to one watt. Abbr.: V
[1870–75; after A. Volta]
1. a circular movement or gait in manège in which a horse going sideways turns around a center with its head facing outward.
2. a sudden leap in fencing to avoid a thrust.
[1650–60; < French volte < Italian volta, n. derivative of voltare to turn < Vulgar Latin *volvitare]
A unit used to measure electromotive force. One volt is equal to the force that carries one ampere of current through a conductor that has a resistance of one ohm.
1. The unit of potential difference.
2. (V) A unit of electromotive force and potential difference, equal to the difference in potential between two points of a conducting wire carrying a constant current of one ampere (A), when the power released between the points is one watt (W). Named after the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745–1827).
