How to Convert Kiloamperes to Coulombs Per Second

To convert a kiloampere measurement to a coulomb per second measurement, multiply the electric current by the conversion ratio.

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 kiloamperes multiplied by 1,000.

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


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 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.

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 formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.[1]
