Volts to eV Calculator

It is a conversion calculator used to convert the electrical voltage in volts (V) to the energy in electron volts (eV). Volts cannot be converted directly to electron volts, but you can calculate electron volts from elementary coulombs and volts. The reason is that the two units have different quantities thus the conversion cannot be fulfilled.

The first step is to enter the voltage in volts before selecting the type o charge unit. It can either be elementary charge unit or Coulomb unit. Enter the elementary charge before clicking on the ‘Calculate' button. The results in electron volts will be displayed on the platform below the two controls.

Calculating the volts to electron volts with elementary charge

E (eV) = V (V) x Q (e), which means that the energy in electron volts is calculated by multiplying the voltage in volts by the electric charge in electron charge (e).

For example;
An electrical circuit has a voltage supply of 35 Volts, and a charge flow of 60 electron charges. What is the energy in electron volts consumed by the circuit?

Solution
E (eV) = V (V) x Q (e)

= 35 V x 60 e = 2100 electron volts (eV)

Calculating the volts to electron volts with coulombs

E (eV) = V (V) x Q (C) / 1.602176565 x 10-19, which means that the energy in electron volts is calculated by multiplying the voltage in volts by the electrical charge in coulombs. The result is then divided by (1.602176565 x 10-19)

For example;
If an electrical circuit has a voltage supply of 27 volts with a charge flow of 7 coulombs, what is the energy in electron volts consumed by the circuit?

Solution;
E (eV) = V (V) x Q (C) / 1.602176565 x 10-19

= 27 V x 7C / 1.602176565 x 10-19 = 1.1796452659e + 21 (eV)
