How to Convert Volts to Gigavolts

To convert a volt measurement to a gigavolt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One volt is equal to 1.0E-9 gigavolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigavolts = volts × 1.0E-9

The voltage in gigavolts is equal to the volts multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 volts to gigavolts using the formula above.
5 V = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 GV

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


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.


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.
