What is the current through a wire if 240 coulombs of
charge pass through the wire in 2.0 minutes?

• Ronit -

240coul/2.0min * 1min/60s = 2.0coul/s = 2.0A

• Ronit -

120A

• Ronit -

Current= change in charge / time

Charge = 240 coulombs
time= 2 minutes

convert minutes to seconds so time = 120 seconds

240 c/ 120 s= 0.5 A
