Unit EV
Name exavolt
Category Electric Potential
Details The Exavolt (EV) is a unit of electric potential in the International System of Units (SI). It represents a very large amount of potential difference or voltage. One Exavolt is equal to 10^18 volts or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 volts (1 quintillion volts).

Electric potential, also known as voltage, describes the potential energy per unit charge in an electric system, and it drives electric current flow through a circuit. The SI base unit for electric potential is the Volt (V), and the Exavolt is an SI prefix that adds a scaling factor to the base unit to represent a much larger amount.

Although Exavolt is an SI unit, it is rarely used in practical applications due to its huge magnitude, as most electrical systems and equipment operate at much lower voltage levels. Nevertheless, the unit is still part of the SI system and may be used in theoretical discussions or situations where extremely high electric potential values are considered.
