Coulomb Definition and Usage

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.

Background and Origin

Coulombs are named in honor of Charles-Augustin de Coulomb who published a law quantifying the force between two electrically charged particles in 1785. This law is known today as Coulomb's Law. The coulomb was named as a unit of electromotive force in 1881.
