# Volts to kilovolts conversion

Volts to kilovolts conversion is a process of converting voltage values from Volts to kilovolts, which is a commonly used unit in electrical engineering. By dividing the value in Volts by 1000, you can convert it to kilovolts. This conversion is useful when dealing with large voltage values that are more conveniently expressed in kilovolts.

## What is Volts to kilovolts conversion

To convert volts (V) to kilovolts (kV), you need to divide the value in volts by 1,000.

This is because there are 1,000 volts in a kilovolt.

For example, let's convert 2,500 volts to kilovolts:

kV = 2,500 V / 1,000 kV = 2.5 kV

Therefore, 2,500 volts is equal to 2.5 kilovolts.

## How to convet volts to kilovolts

1 V = 10^{-3} kV = 0.001 kV

or

1 kV = 10^{3} V = 1000 V

### Volts to kilovolts formula

The voltage *V* in kilovolts (kV) is equal to the voltage *V* in volts (V) divided by 1000:

*V*_{(kV)} = *V*_{(V)} / 1000

### Example

Convert 3 volts to kilovolts:

*V*_{(kV)} = 3V / 1000 = 0.003 kV
