Volts to Kilovolts Conversion

It is a conversion calculator used to convert the voltage in Volts (V) to voltage in Kilovolts (kV). The converter is quick and reliable because it uses a straightforward approach in determining the results. It is equipped with two active controls that perform independent functions of the calculator. The blank text field allows you to enter the value in Volts. It can then be converted to Kilovolts by clicking the ‘Convert’ button. The results in Kilovolts will be displayed in the bottom platform below the two controls. The prefix “Kilo” is used as an exponential notation that represents a factor of 103. Volts is commonly referred to as Voltage and is the SI derived unit of an electromotive force or electric potential difference.

Example

Convert 40 Volts to Kilovolts

Solution

The first procedure of using the calculator is to enter the voltage 40 in the blank text field. Initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert’ button. The result in Kilovolts will be displayed below the two controls as; 0.04

Calculation

40 Volts / 1000

= 0.04 Kilovolts (kV)

You can always repeat the same procedure using new values. Since this converter can only perform one conversion at a time, it will be flexible to use the ‘Reset’ button. It erases all data of the previous calculations with a single click.

Formula used in converting Volts to Kilovolts

1 V = 10-3 kV = 0.001 kV is the standard principle used in the conversions. Therefore, it implies that one Volt is equivalent to 10 Kilovolts cubed or 0.001 kV. It can also be expressed as;

1 kV = 103 V = 1000 V

V (kV) = V (V) / 1000 is the method used by the calculator in performing the calculations. To get the voltage in Kilovolts, you will divide the voltage in Volts by 1000.
