## How to Convert Coulombs per Second to Megaamperes

To convert a measurement in coulombs per second to a measurement in megaamperes, divide the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 coulombs per second/megaampere.

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 electric current in 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.
megaamperes = (500,000 C/s ÷ 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.

## What Are 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units. For example, C/s is expressing a change in electric charge relative to a change in time.

## What Is a Megaampere?

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 millions, or 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.
