Is voltage measured in amps?

What about watts?


Answer by  apsaras (408)

No, voltage is measured in unit called volts. Current is the quantity that is measured in amps (or amperes). Watts are the unit for power, or energy converted per unit time. The three quantities are related. Power in watts is equal to voltage in volts multiplied by current in amps.

Voltage(V) is measured in units of Volts. Current(I) is measured in units of Amps. Power(P) is measured in units of watts. Power = Voltage x Current, P = VI

Voltage can be measure in both. Amps or amperage refers to the amount of current flowing trough an electrical circuit. Watts are used to describe the total amount of energy. It is found by multiplying the voltage amount times the amperage.
