About giga-electron volt

The giga-electron volt, or gigaelectronvolt, is a unit of energy equal to 1.60217656535 × 10-10 joules (1 GeV = 1.60217656535 × 10-10 J), the SI derived unit of energy.

The giga-electron volt (GeV) is also equal to 0.160217656535 nanojoules (nJ), or 1.60217656535 × 10-7 millijoules (mJ), or 1.60217656535 × 10-13 kilojoules (kJ), or 109 electronvolts (eV) or 1,000,000 kiloelectronvolts (keV).

One gigaelectronvolt (GeV) or one billion electronvolts (BeV) is equal to 109 electronvolts (eV). The electronvolt is the kinetic energy gained by a free electron when it travels through a potential difference of one volt.

The gigaelectronvolt is used in physics for measuring the energies of elementary particles.
