Definition of Volt
1. Noun. A unit of potential equal to the potential difference between two points on a conductor carrying a current of 1 ampere when the power dissipated between the two points is 1 watt; equivalent to the potential difference across a resistance of 1 ohm when 1 ampere of current flows through it.
Generic synonyms: Potential Unit
Terms within: Abvolt, Millivolt, Mv, Microvolt, Nanovolt, Picovolt, Femtovolt
Group relationships: Kilovolt, Kv

Definition of Volt
1. n. A circular tread; a gait by which a horse going sideways round a center makes two concentric tracks.
2. n. The unit of electromotive force;  defined by the International Electrical Congress in 1893 and by United States Statute as, that electromotive force which steadily applied to a conductor whose resistance is one ohm will produce a current of one ampère. It is practically equivalent to &frac1000x1434; the electro motive force of a standard Clark's cell at a temperature of 15° C.
