## What Is a Kilovolt?

A kilovolt is a unit used to measure voltage.

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as *kV*; for example, 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.

## How Much Is a Kilovolt?

One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

## How to Convert Kilovolts

To convert kilovolts to another unit of voltage, 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.^{[1]}

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

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

kilovolts × conversion factor = result

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