Difference between Volt and Watt.

One of the main characteristics of any electrical equipment is voltage and power consumption, therefore, on any device (or in the passport for it) there is information about power (Watt) and voltage (Volt).


Watt (W or W) is a unit of measure for power.

Volt (V or V) is a unit of measurement for electrical potential, voltage, potential difference and electromotive force.


Volts and Watt are units of measurement for different electrical parameters.

1 Volt is the amount of electrical voltage at the ends of a conductor required to generate heat with a power equal to 1 Watt when the strength of a direct electric current flowing through this conductor is equal to one Ampere. Also, 1 Volt can be characterized as the difference in electrical potentials between two existing points in the case when it is required to perform work equal to 1 Joule to move an electric charge of 1 Coulomb from point to point.

1 Watt is the amount of power at which work equal to one Joule is performed in one second. Therefore, Watt is a unit derived from other quantities. So, for example, power is related to voltage as follows: W = V • A, where B is an indicator of the magnitude of the voltage, and A is an indicator of the magnitude of the current. In addition to mechanical power, electrical and thermal power are also distinguished.

  1. Watt (W or W) is the standard unit of power measurement.
  2. Volt (V or V) is a standard unit of measurement for voltage, electrical potential, electrical potential, and electromotive force.
  3. The power (W) of any device can be calculated by multiplying the voltage (V) by the amperage (A). AMPERE (A) is the standard unit for measuring electric current.
