To convert watts to volts, you need to know the current (in amperes). The formula to convert watts (W) to volts (V) is:
V = W/A
Where:
Below is a table showing examples of watts to volts conversions with a given current of 1 ampere for simplicity.

Assuming different current values, here are the calculations:
V = 10/1 = 10 volts
V = 10/2 = 5 volts
V = 10/4 = 2.5 volts
So, for 10 watts:
To convert 100 watts to volts, you need to know the current in amperes. The formula to convert watts (W) to volts (V) is:
V = W/A
Where:
Assuming a current of 1 ampere (A):
V = 100/1 = 100 volts
Therefore, 100 watts is equal to 100 volts when the current is 1 ampere.
If you have a different current, you can use the same formula with the specific current value to find the corresponding voltage. For example, if the current is 2 amperes:
V = 100/2 = 50 volts
Assuming different current values, here are the calculations:
V = 1000/1 = 1000 volts
V = 1000/2 = 500 volts
V = 1000/4 = 250 volts
So, for 1000 watts:
A watt is a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as one joule per second and is used to quantify the rate of energy transfer. In electrical terms, one watt is the rate at which electrical energy is consumed or generated when one ampere of current flows with a potential difference of one volt. The formula for power in terms of electrical energy is:
P = V × I
Where:
A volt is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force. One volt is defined as the potential difference across a conductor when a current of one ampere dissipates one watt of power. The formula relating voltage to power and current is:
V = P/I
Where:
Understanding these basic concepts and conversions is essential for anyone working with electrical systems, whether designing circuits, installing electrical systems, or troubleshooting electrical issues.
