Wikipedia Definition

The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force. The volt is named in honour of the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745–1827), who invented the voltaic pile, possibly the first chemical battery., Template:Other useyo here we gosThe volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force.
