# Peak-to-Peak Voltage Calculator

Calculate peak-to-peak voltage if you know either the peak or the RMS voltage using the calculator below.

## Convert Peak Voltage to Peak-to-Peak Voltage

## Convert RMS Voltage to Peak-to-Peak Voltage

Do you want to calculate peak voltage or RMS voltage?

## How to Calculate Peak-to-Peak Voltage

Peak-to-peak voltage is the distance from the lowest negative amplitude, or trough, to the highest positive amplitude, or crest, of the AC voltage waveform. In other words, peak-to-peak voltage is equal to the full height of the waveform. Peak-to-peak voltage can be found using peak voltage or RMS voltage.

### Peak Voltage to Peak-to-Peak Voltage Formula

If the peak voltage is known, then the peak-to-peak voltage can be found using this formula where V_{P} is the peak voltage.

V_{P-P} = V_{P} × 2

Thus, peak-to-peak voltage is equal to peak voltage time two.

**For example,** let’s find peak-to-peak voltage using a peak voltage of 120 V.

V_{P-P} = 120 V × 2

V_{P-P} = 240 V

### RMS Voltage to Peak-to-Peak Voltage Formula

Using RMS voltage, the peak voltage can be found using this formula where V_{RMS} is RMS voltage.

V_{P-P} = 2 × √2 × V_{RMS}

So, peak-to-peak voltage is equal to two times the square root of two times RMS voltage.

**For example,** let’s find the peak-to-peak voltage using 75 V RMS voltage.

V_{P-P} = 2 × √2 × 75 V

V_{P-P} = 212.13 V
