How to Convert Coulombs Per Second to Megaamperes

To convert a coulomb per second measurement to a megaampere measurement, divide the electric current by the conversion ratio.

Since one megaampere is equal to 1,000,000 coulombs per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megaamperes = coulombs per second ÷ 1,000,000

The electric current in megaamperes is equal to the coulombs per second divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 coulombs per second to megaamperes using the formula above.
500,000 C/s = (500,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 0.5 MA

Coulombs per second and megaamperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Coulombs Per Second

One coulomb per second is equal to one coulomb of charge over one second.

Coulombs per second can be abbreviated as C/s; for example, 1 coulomb per second can be written as 1 C/s.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.[1]


One megaampere is equal to 1,000,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The megaampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. A megaampere is sometimes also referred to as a megaamp. Megaamperes can be abbreviated as MA; for example, 1 megaampere can be written as 1 MA.
