(vōlt) 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.

## volt

**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).
