Understanding Electrical Units

Volt (V):
A volt signifies voltage. It's defined as the energy usage of 1 joule when 1 coulomb of electric charge circulates within a circuit. 1V = 1J/C

Ampere (A):
Ampere measures electrical current, quantifying the electrical charge flowing in a circuit every second. 1A = 1C/s

Ohm (Ω):
Ohm represents electrical resistance, calculated as: 1Ω = 1V/1A

Watt (W):
Watt evaluates electric power, denoting the energy consumption rate. 1W = 1J/s = 1V ⋅ 1A

Decibel-milliwatt (dBm):
dBm is a power unit, gauged on a logarithmic scale, anchored to 1mW. 10dBm = 10 ⋅ log10(10mW/1mW)

Decibel-Watt (dBW):
dBW also measures electric power but references 1W. 10dBW = 10 ⋅ log10(10W/1W)

Farad (F):
Farad assesses capacitance, indicating electric charge storage per volt. 1F = 1C/1V

Henry (H):
Henry is synonymous with inductance. 1H = 1Wb/1A

Siemens (S):
Siemens gauges conductance, essentially being the antithesis of resistance. 1S = 1/1Ω

Coulomb (C):
Coulomb stands for electric charge, equivalent to 6.238792×10^18 electron charges.

Ampere-hour (Ah):
This unit denotes electric charge, signifying the charge flowing in a circuit with a 1-ampere current over 1 hour. 1Ah = 1A ⋅ 1 hour = 3600C

Tesla (T):
Tesla quantifies the magnetic field. 1T = 1Wb/1m^2

Weber (Wb):
Weber stands for magnetic flux. 1Wb = 1V ⋅ 1s

Joule (J):
Joule is an energy measure. 1J = 1 kg ⋅ m^2/s^2

Kilowatt-hour (kWh):
This unit measures energy. 1kWh = 1kW ⋅ 1h = 1000W ⋅ 1h

Kilovolt-amps (kVA):
Kilovolt-amps quantify power. 1kVA = 1kV ⋅ 1A

Hertz (Hz):
Hertz determines frequency, measuring cycle counts each second. 1 Hz = 1 cycle/s
