Battery capacity formulas

The unit of measure of energy is watt hours(Wh) or kilojoules (kJ)

\( 1\; Wh = 3,6\; kJ \)

The unit of capacity is milliamp hours (mAh) or coulombs (C)

\( 1\; mAh = 3,6\; C \)

The unit of measurement for voltage is the volt (V)

\(\displaystyle energy= capacity · voltage\)
\(\displaystyle E= C · U\)

\(\displaystyle capacity =\frac{energy}{voltage}\)
\(\displaystyle C= \frac{E}{U}\)

\(\displaystyle voltage =\frac{energy}{capacity}\)
\(\displaystyle U= \frac{E}{C}\)
