Help converting mA to V

Could someone tell me how to convert milliamps to volts or tell me what 177 mA is in volts

V = I*R is ohms law, where v is in volts, I is in amperes, and R is in ohms. It is not actually possible to convert between amps (or milliamps) and volts. The only way to do something that resembles what you're asking is to ask for the voltage and current for a specified resistor.

I'll tell you if you tell we why you used such large and ugly font and colors first.

As has been stated, Ohm's Law is the equation you need to apply here. Have you a specific resistance in mind? Without the value of resistance it is only possible to state that 177 milliamps equates to 177 millivolts per ohm.

I would recommend selecting a smaller font in the future.

There is a currebt to voltage converter. It's called a resistor. The you use Ohm's law - E = IR.
