# Difference between Volt, Watt and Ampere

Question by Guest | 2018-09-29 at 15:01

Can anyone explain the difference between watt, voltage and amp?

All three terms are related to electricity. Depending on what you want to measure you take one or them. Each are units in which a certain amount of electricity is measured.

• Ampere is the intensity/strength of current (I)
• Watt is the power of current (P)
• Volt is the electric tension (U)

In the end, however, all values are interdependent.

The general formula is:

$P=U*I$

Power = Voltage x Strength
