What does voltage describe?

Voltage, also called electromotive force, is a quantitative expression of the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field.

What value of voltage can kill?

In general, the voltage would have to be above about 100 volts to kill. For low voltages like 100 - 300 volts, death is usually caused by the electricity shocking your heart into a state where it vibrates instead of pumping (fibrillation).

How do you check voltage with meter?

Yes, you can check the voltage by plugging in the cord, then setting your meter to ACV (AC Volts) on a scale higher than your line voltage. Or set the meter to the lowest resistance range, and measure each wire separately from plug to receptacle (not plugged in) -- should be 0 for each.

What is the difference between voltage and power?

Voltage is known as potential or in simpler terms “how fast the electrons flow”. Power is a function of voltage times the volume of electrons (current). Power is the ability to do work and is measured in Watts. The higher the voltage the more power you have with the same current (Watts (power) = Volts x Amps.
