One is volts divided by seconds and the other is voltage multiplied by seconds.

If you were to substitute velocity for voltage, the first would be distance and the second acceleration.

i am not clear.please break it little more with electronic based example

A volt second is a unit of magnetic flux (the Weber). Volts per second is a measure of the rate of change of a voltage.

At the risk of unnecessarily confusing the situation,
is not quite right.
If velocity = Voltage, then
Volts/Seconds = velocity/seconds = Acceleration, and
Volt*seconds =velocity*seconds = distance.

The interesting thing about this question is, where would this question specifically arise? In general it is a question about dimensional analysis, but not many people encounter Volt seconds in everyday life.

True, I got it backwards.
