How to Convert Gigavolts to Volts

To convert a gigavolt measurement to a volt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000,000 volts, so use this simple formula to convert:

volts = gigavolts × 1,000,000,000

The voltage in volts is equal to the gigavolts multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigavolts to volts using the formula above.
5 GV = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 V

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

Gigavolts

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

The gigavolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 106. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV, for example 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.

Volts

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.
