Unit µV
Name microvolt
Category Electric Potential
Details A microvolt (µV) is a unit of electric potential, also known as voltage or potential difference. It is a derived unit of the International System of Units (SI) and is equal to one millionth (1/1,000,000) of a volt (V).

In the field of electric potential, voltage is a measure of the electric potential energy per unit charge that exists between two points in an electric field. It represents the force required to move an electric charge from one point to another against the electric field.

A microvolt (µV) is often used in circuits and electronic devices where the potential difference is very small, like in low-power electronic components such as sensors or bioelectronic devices (e.g., measuring brain wave voltage in electroencephalography). It helps to provide precise measurements when dealing with very small voltages.
