How to Convert Abvolts to Volts

To convert a abvolt measurement to a volt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One abvolt is equal to 1.0E-8 volts, so use this simple formula to convert:

volts = abvolts × 1.0E-8

The voltage in volts is equal to the abvolts multiplied by 1.0E-8.

For example, here's how to convert 5 abvolts to volts using the formula above.
5 abV = (5 × 1.0E-8) = 5.0E-8 V

Abvolts and volts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One abvolt is the difference in electric potential equal to exactly 10 nanovolts. One abvolt is equal to the potential difference that would move one abampere of current against one abohm of resistance.

The abvolt is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) electrostatic unit of voltage. A abvolt is sometimes also referred to as an EMU. Abvolts can be abbreviated as abV, and are also sometimes abbreviated as aV. For example, 1 abvolt can be written as 1 abV or 1 aV.


Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor. One volt is equal to the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The volt is the SI derived unit for voltage in the metric system. Volts can be abbreviated as V, for example 1 volt can be written as 1 V.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the potential difference in volts as an expression using current and resistance.

VV = IA × R

The potential difference in volts is equal to the current in amperes times the resistance in ohms.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
