How would you define voltage?...

Is voltage a force? Pressure? Potential? Why voltage is called electro motive force at generation?

    1)Electromotive force, abbreviated emf is the electrical intensity or "pressure" .
    2)Voltage is electric potential energy per unit charge, measured in joules per coulomb ( = volts). ... A to B. When a voltage is generated, it is sometimes called an "electromotive force" or emf. ... Analogy with pressure in water circuit ... (voltage) which has been made available by the generatingmechanism and is not a "force".

    Voltage is flow of electrons and pressure of electron, which flow higher potential deference to lower potential difference.

    Potential

    I would define it as a force which drives electrones from 0 energy state a finite energy state

    VOLTAGE IS A FORCE

    Voltage is nothing but it is external force is required to move or push the electrons from one place to another place in a closed path.

    Voltage is a potential for the flow of electrons

    Voltage is the potential difference between any two points.
    If you keenly observe the term ' electro-motive force' with its literary meaning:
    Electro means electrical energy
    Motive is related to motion
    Force is the driving source for any motion.

    So it is called electromotive force at generation because it is the drives current(i.e. a form of electrical energy) into the circuit.

    Voltage is a potential difference expressed in volt between two point..Voltage is called Electro Motive force at generation because it is the electrical intensity or "pressure" developed by a source of electrical energy such as a battery or generator
