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
