How to Convert Kilovolts to Abvolts

To convert a kilovolt measurement to a abvolt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One kilovolt is equal to 100,000,000,000 abvolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

abvolts = kilovolts × 100,000,000,000

The voltage in abvolts is equal to the kilovolts multiplied by 100,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilovolts to abvolts using the formula above.
5 kV = (5 × 100,000,000,000) = 500,000,000,000 abV

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


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.

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 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV, for example 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.


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.

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.
