# How Many Volts Equal One Amp?

If electricity were water, the water meter on a house would show a measure of current or amperes (amps), which is the rate at which water flows into a house. If the water came from a tank high above ground, it would have more potential to flow than water from a lower tank. That potential to flow is voltage, measured in volts.
