What is giga-electron volt?
The gigaelectronvolt is a unit of energy equal to 1.60217656535x10-10 joules (1 GeV = 1.60217656535x10-10 J), the SI derived unit of energy. It is also equal to 0.160217656535 nanojoules (nJ), or 1.60217656535x10-7 millijoules (mJ), or 1.60217656535x10-13 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.
The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
Also known as:
gigaelectron-volt (plural: gigaelectron-volts), giga-electron volt (plural: giga-electron volts), billion electronvolt (plural: billion electronvolts, abbreviation: BeV)
