05/06/09 Introduction to Engineering Electronics STOLEN FROM K. A. Connor 6 Voltage Voltage is defined as the amount of work done or the energy required (in joules) in moving a unit of positive charge (1 coulomb) from a lower potential to a higher potential. Voltage is also called potential difference (PD). When you measure voltage you must have two points to compare, one of them being the reference point. When measuring the voltage drop for a circuit component it is sometimes called measuring the potential across that component. 1 volt = 1 joule/coulomb
