How can i convert V to eV in a problem?
I know that 1V=1.6X10^-19 J but I don't see how that can help...
Thanks.
Hi lha08!How can i convert V to eV in a problem?
So in this case, the charge of an electron is 1.60X10^-19 J...so is it impossible to convert eV to V? Not really sure...Thanks..Hi lha08!
V is voltage (potential difference), but eV is energy …
1 eV is the https://www.physicsforums.com/library.php?do=view_item&itemid=75" (ie energy) when an electron (whose charge you can look up ) moves through a potential difference of 1 V.
V (volts) measure potential difference (voltage). eV (electron volts) measure energy and can thus be converted to J (joules). V and eV measure two different things and therefore cannot be converted to each other.So in this case, the charge of an electron is 1.60X10^-19 J...so is it impossible to convert eV to V? Not really sure...Thanks..
Nooo … the charge of an electron is in coulombs (C).So in this case, the charge of an electron is 1.60X10^-19 J...so is it impossible to convert eV to V? Not really sure...Thanks..
