## 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:

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.

### 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.

## Kiloamperes

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 10^{3}. 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]}
