## How to Convert Biots to Amperes

To convert a measurement in biots to a measurement in amperes, multiply the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 10 amperes/biot.

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

amperes = biots × 10

The electric current in amperes is equal to the electric current in biots multiplied by 10.

For example, here's how to convert 5 biots to amperes using the formula above.
amperes = (5 Bi × 10) = 50 A

### How Many Amperes Are in a Biot?

There are 10 amperes in a biot, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Bi = 10 A

## What Is a Biot?

The biot is a unit of electrical current named for Jean-Baptiste Biot. One biot is equal to one abampere.

A biot is sometimes also referred to as an abampere. Biots can be abbreviated as Bi; for example, 1 biot can be written as 1 Bi.

## 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.

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.
