How to Convert Volts to Gigavolts

To convert a measurement in volts to a measurement in gigavolts, divide the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 volts/gigavolt.

Since one gigavolt is equal to 1,000,000,000 volts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigavolts = volts ÷ 1,000,000,000

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

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

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

What Is a Volt?

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.

Voltage and Ohm's Law

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

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.

What Is a Gigavolt?

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 billions, or 109. Gigavolts can be abbreviated as GV; for example, 1 gigavolt can be written as 1 GV.
