How to Convert Amperes to Abamperes

To convert a measurement in amperes to a measurement in abamperes, divide the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 10 amperes/abampere.

Since one abampere is equal to 10 amperes, you can use this simple formula to convert:

abamperes = amperes ÷ 10

The electric current in abamperes is equal to the electric current in amperes divided by 10.

For example, here's how to convert 5 amperes to abamperes using the formula above.
abamperes = (5 A ÷ 10) = 0.5 abA

Amperes and abamperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is an Ampere?

The ampere, commonly referred to as an "amp," is the electrical current constant equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The ampere was previously defined as a constant current that when passed through two straight and parallel conductors that are spaced one meter apart, will produce a force equal to 0.0000002 newtons per meter of length.

In 2019, the ampere was redefined as the electric current corresponding to the flow of 1/(1.602 176 634 × 10-19) elementary charges per second.[1]

The ampere is the SI base unit for electric current in the metric system. An ampere is sometimes also referred to as an amp. Amperes can be abbreviated as A; for example, 1 ampere can be written as 1 A.

Amperage and Ohm's Law

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the current in amperes as an expression using resistance and voltage.

IA = VV / R

The current in amperes is equal to the potential difference in volts divided by the resistance in ohms.

What Is an Abampere?

The abmpere is the electrical current constant equal to the flow of one abcoulomb per second, or ten amperes in the International System of Units.

The abampere is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) electromagnetic unit of electric current. An abampere is sometimes also referred to as a biot. Abamperes can be abbreviated as abA; for example, 1 abampere can be written as 1 abA.
