## How to Convert Coulombs to Microcoulombs

To convert a coulomb measurement to a microcoulomb measurement, multiply the electric charge by the conversion ratio.

Since one coulomb is equal to 1,000,000 microcoulombs, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The electric charge in microcoulombs is equal to the coulombs multiplied by 1,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 coulombs to microcoulombs using the formula above.

### How Many Microcoulombs are in a Coulomb?

There are **1,000,000** microcoulombs in a coulomb, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 C = 1,000,000 μC

Coulombs and microcoulombs are both units used to measure electric charge. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Coulombs

One coulomb is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.^{[1]}

The coulomb can be expressed as Q_{C} = I_{A} × t_{s}

The charge in coulombs is equal to the current in amperes times the time in seconds.

The coulomb is the SI derived unit for electric charge in the metric system. Coulombs can be abbreviated as *C*; for example, 1 coulomb can be written as 1 C.

## Microcoulombs

The microcoulomb is 1/1,000,000 of a coulomb, which is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

The microcoulomb is a multiple of the coulomb, which is the SI derived unit for electric charge. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10^{-6}. Microcoulombs can be abbreviated as *μC*; for example, 1 microcoulomb can be written as 1 μC.
