## What Is an Electronvolt?

An electronvolt is a unit used to measure energy.

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV; for example, 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.

### Uses

The electronvolt is a unit of energy used in physics, most commonly in electrostatic particle accelerator sciences.

## How Much Is an Electronvolt?

An electronvolt is the amount of energy required to accelerate an electron through a difference in electric potential of one volt in vacuum. One electronvolt is equal to the charge of 1.602176634 × 10−19 C, and is equal to the energy of 1.602176634 × 10−19 Joules.[1]

## How to Convert Electronvolts

To convert electronvolts to another unit of energy, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[2]

You can find the conversion factors for electronvolts in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the energy measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

electronvolts × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
