# Statvolt

Physical unit
Unit name Statvolt
Unit symbol ${\ displaystyle \ mathrm {statV}}$ Physical quantity (s) Electric voltage , electric potential
Formula symbol ${\ displaystyle U}$ dimension ${\ displaystyle {\ mathsf {M}} ^ {\ frac {1} {2}} \; {\ mathsf {L}} ^ {\ frac {1} {2}} \; {\ mathsf {T}} ^ {- 1}}$ system Electrostatic CGS unit system , Gaussian CGS unit system
In SI units ${\ displaystyle 1 \, \ mathrm {statV} \ sim 299 {,} 792458 \, \ mathrm {V}}$ In CGS units ${\ displaystyle 1 \, \ mathrm {statV} = 1 \, \ mathrm {erg} / \ mathrm {statC}}$ The Statvolt (symbol:) is the unit of electrical voltage and electrical potential in the electrostatic CGS unit system (ESU). ${\ displaystyle \ mathrm {statV}}$ It is defined as the electrical voltage at which a force from an erg acts on a charge from a statC :

${\ displaystyle 1 \ \ mathrm {statV} = 1 \ \ mathrm {\ frac {erg} {statC}}}$ The conversion into the SI unit volt is:

${\ displaystyle 1 \ \ mathrm {statV} \ {\ mathrel {\ hat {=}}} \ 299 {,} 792458 \ \ mathrm {V}}$ The conversion factor corresponds to the numerical value of the speed of light in a vacuum in m / s, divided by . ${\ displaystyle 10 ^ {6}}$
