How to Convert Kiloamperes to Coulombs per Second

To convert a measurement in kiloamperes to a measurement in coulombs per second, multiply the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 coulombs per second/kiloampere.

Since one kiloampere is equal to 1,000 coulombs per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

coulombs per second = kiloamperes × 1,000

The electric current in coulombs per second is equal to the electric current in kiloamperes multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kiloamperes to coulombs per second using the formula above.
coulombs per second = (5 kA × 1,000) = 5,000 C/s

How Many Coulombs per Second Are in a Kiloampere?

There are 1,000 coulombs per second in a kiloampere, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kA = 1,000 C/s

Kiloamperes and coulombs per second are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Kiloampere?

One kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The kiloampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. A kiloampere is sometimes also referred to as a kiloamp. Kiloamperes can be abbreviated as kA; for example, 1 kiloampere can be written as 1 kA.

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.[1] For example, C/s is expressing a change in electric charge relative to a change in time.
