How to Convert Microvolts to Volts

conversion scale showing microvolts and equivalent volts voltage values

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

volts = microvolts ÷ 1,000,000

The voltage in volts is equal to the microvolts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 microvolts to volts using the formula above.
5,000,000 µV = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 V

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

Microvolts

One microvolt is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a volt, which is the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The microvolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microvolts can be abbreviated as µV; for example, 1 microvolt can be written as 1 µV.

Volts

Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor.[1] 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.
