Types of Voltages

Greater the voltage, greater the flow of conducting or semi-conducting medium for a given resistance to flow. Voltage is symbolized by uppercase italic letter V or E

The standard unit is the volt, symbolized by non-italic uppercase letter V

1V will drive 1 coulomb(6.24x108) charge carriers, such as electrons, through a resistance of 1Ω in 1 second.
