And frankly, the Tesla Model S, which will probably be about the same price as the volt initially, has a good shot, too.
Its electric car the volt had its best month ever, selling 3,351 units.
On the other hand, sales of the volt declined in April 2013 from April 2012.
Which car is most likely to be the biggest competitor to the volt?
So do we need to establish a floor on the price of gas to create a viable market for next generation cars like the volt?
If there are more turns of wire forming the secondary, then each turn has induced in it just one volt.
Now, in electricity the unit of pressure, or force, is called a volt.
Now connect our standard cell—one volt—through one ohm resistance and we have a current of one ampère.
The electromotive force of one cell of a Daniell battery is about one volt.
volt meters and armatures for the alternating current have electro-magnets for their fields as well as for their armatures.
unit of electromotive force, 1873, back-formation from adj. voltaic.
volt (vōlt)
n.
Abbr. V
A unit of electromotive force in the Internation System of Units that will produce a current of 1 ampere in a circuit that has resistance of 1 ohm.
volt (vōlt) The SI derived unit used to measure electric potential at a given point, usually a point in an electric circuit. A voltage difference of one volt drives one ampere of current through a conductor that has a resistance of one ohm. One joule of work is required to move an electric charge of one coulomb across a potential difference of one volt. One volt is equivalent to one joule per coulomb. See also Ohm's law. |
The unit of electromotive force, the volt measures how much “pressure” there is in an electric circuit. The higher the voltage, the more electrical current will flow in the circuit.
Note: Ordinary household outlets are usually rated at 115 volts, car batteries at 12 volts, and flashlight batteries at 1.5 volts.
