Its electric car the volt had its best month ever, selling 3,351 units.
On the other hand, sales of the volt declined in April 2013 from April 2012.
The volt, a plug-in hybrid, was expected to be the easier sell, since it also uses gas and has a range of several hundred models.
The volt, which can run for about 30 miles on electricity and has been slow to catch on, has been mocked by critics of GM.
“It sounds trivial but those numbers really add up a lot,” said Rory Paul of volt Aerial Robotics.
For a six volt battery this should rarely exceed 14 amperes.
The unit of velocity, or pressure of the electric current is called a volt.
That's three-millionths of a millionth of a ampere-second at one volt.
Now, in electricity the unit of pressure, or force, is called a volt.
This word "volt" does not mean any weight, as the word "pound" weight does.
unit of electromotive force, 1873, back-formation from adj. voltaic.
volt (vōlt)
n.
Abbr. V
A unit of electromotive force in the Internation System of Units that will produce a current of 1 ampere in a circuit that has resistance of 1 ohm.
volt The SI derived unit used to measure electric potential at a given point, usually a point in an electric circuit. A voltage difference of one volt drives one ampere of current through a conductor that has a resistance of one ohm. One joule of work is required to move an electric charge of one coulomb across a potential difference of one volt. One volt is equivalent to one joule per coulomb. See also Ohm's law. |
The unit of electromotive force, the volt measures how much “pressure” there is in an electric circuit. The higher the voltage, the more electrical current will flow in the circuit.
Note: Ordinary household outlets are usually rated at 115 volts, car batteries at 12 volts, and flashlight batteries at 1.5 volts.
