Q:
# How Many Volts Are in 1 Amp?

**Amps do not contain any volts.** Volts and amps are two different types of electrical properties, and one does not contain the other. A relationship does exist between volts and amps, and Ohm's Law defines that relationship.

Volts are a measure of the electrical potential between one point and another, such as between the two slots in a wall outlet. Amps (amperes) are a measure of the flow of electric current. If there is an electric circuit that features a resistive element, such as the element in a heater, the current flowing through that element is equal to the voltage across the element divided by the resistance of the element. This relationship is Ohm's law: I = E/R, sometimes expressed as E = IR, where E is volts, I is amps, and R is resistance.
