Problem: A wire carries a 15μA current.How many electrons pass a given point on the wire in 1.0s ?

FREE Expert Solution

Current is defined as the amount of charge that passes a fixed point.

1A = 1C/s

Current and charge are related by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Q}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{t}}}$ where Q is the amount of charge, i is the current and t is the charge.
