  • n  the rate at which energy is drawn from a source that produces a flow of electricity in a circuit; expressed in volts
  • n  the difference in electrical charge between two points in a circuit expressed in volts

  • Therefore a direct voltage of 3,000,000 traveling along a line will suddenly jump to over 5,000,000 volts in for the brief instant that it strikes the end of the line.
  • It can't offer the high-voltage stars and sexy mass appeal that today's entertainment scene demands.
  • The electricity travels along high-voltage lines to a power substation.
