How to Convert Coulombs to Picocoulombs

To convert a coulomb measurement to a picocoulomb measurement, multiply the electric charge by the conversion ratio. One coulomb is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 picocoulombs, so use this simple formula to convert:

picocoulombs = coulombs × 1,000,000,000,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 coulombs to picocoulombs using the formula above.
5 C = (5 × 1,000,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000,000 pC

Coulombs and picocoulombs 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 QC = IA × ts

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.

Picocoulombs

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

The picocoulomb is a multiple of the coulomb, which is the SI derived unit for electric charge. In the metric system, "pico" is the prefix for 10-12. Picocoulombs can be abbreviated as pC, for example 1 picocoulomb can be written as 1 pC.
