What is kilo-electron volt?

The kiloelectronvolt (or kilo-electron volt) is a unit of energy equal to 1.60217656535x10-16 joules (1 keV = 1.60217656535x10-16 J), the SI derived unit of energy. It is also equal to 1.60217656535x10-7 nanojoules (nJ), or 1.60217656535x10-13 millijoules (mJ), or 1.60217656535x10-19 kilojoules (kJ), or 1,000 electronvolts (eV) or 1,000,000 millielectronvolts (meV).

One kiloelectronvolt (keV) is equal to 1,000 electronvolts (eV). The electronvolt is the kinetic energy gained by a free electron when it travels through a potential difference of one volt.

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

The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
