## How to Convert Coulombs to Picocoulombs

To convert a measurement in coulombs to a measurement in picocoulombs, multiply the electric charge by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000,000 picocoulombs/coulomb.

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

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

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

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

### How Many Picocoulombs Are in a Coulomb?

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

1 C = 1,000,000,000,000 pC

## What Is a Coulomb?

One coulomb is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

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.

## What Is a Picocoulomb?

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.
