So Ampere or amp (symbol: A) is the unit of electrical current.

So The Ampere unit is named after Andre-Marie Ampere, from France.

One Ampere is defined as the current that flows with electric charge of one Coulomb per second.

1 A = 1 C/s

So The Ampere meter or ammeter is an electrical instrument that is used to measure electrical current in amperes.

When we want to measure the electrical current on the load, the ampere-meter is connected in series to the load.

So The resistance of the ampere-meter is near zero, so it will not affect the measured circuit.

---|---|---|---|

microampere (microamps) | μA | 1μA = 10^{-6}A | I_{ }= 50μA |

milliampere (milliamps) | mA | 1mA = 10^{-3}A | I_{ }= 3mA |

ampere (amps) | A | - | I_{ }= 10A |

kiloampere (kiloamps) | kA | 1kA = 10^{3}A | I_{ }= 2kA |

So The current I in microamperes (μA) is equal to the current I in amperes (A) divided by 1000000.

*I*_{(μA)} = *I*_{(A)} / 1000000

How to convert 15 Amps to microAmps:

*A*_{(µA)} = 15A × 10^{6} = 15000000 µA

How to convert 20 Amps to microAmps:

*A*_{(µA)} = 15A × 10^{6} = 20000000 µA

So The current I in milliamperes (mA) is equal to the current I in amperes (A) divided by [1000].

*I*_{(mA)} = *I*_{(A)} / 1000

Convert current of 25 amps to milliamps:

The current I in milliamps (mA) is equal to 25 amps (A) times 1000mA/A:

*I*_{(mA)} = 25A × 1000mA/A = 25000mA

Convert current of 35 amps to milliamps:

The current I in milliamps (mA) is equal to 3 amps (A) times 1000mA/A:

*I*_{(mA)} = 35A × 1000mA/A = 35000mA

So The current I in kiloamperes (mA) is equal to the current I in amperes (A) times [1000].

*I*_{(kA)} = *I*_{(A)} ⋅ 1000

How to convert 7,000 amperes to kiloamperes using the formula above.

7,000 A = (7,000 ÷ 1,000) = 7 kA

How to convert 9,000 amperes to kiloamperes using the formula above.

9,000 A = (9,000 ÷ 1,000) = 9 kA

So The power P in watts (W) is equal to the current I in amps (A) times the voltage V in volts (V).

*P*_{(W)} = *I*_{(A)} ⋅ *V*_{(V)}

What is power consumption in watts when the current is 6A and the voltage supply is 110V?

Answer: the power P is equal to current of 6 amps times the voltage of 110 volts.

*P* = 6A × 110V = 660W

What is power consumption in watts when the current is 10A and the voltage supply is 110V?

Answer: the power P is equal to current of 10 amps times the voltage of 110 volts.

*P* = 10A × 110V = 1,100W

The voltage V in volts (V) is equal to the power P in watts (W) divided by the current I in amperes (A):

*V*_{(V)} = *P*_{(W)} / *I*_{(A)}

What is the voltage supply of an electrical circuit that has power consumption of 45 watts and current flow of 6 amps?

The voltage V is equal to 45 watts divided by 6 amps:

*V* = 45W / 6A = 7.5V

What is the voltage supply of an electrical circuit that has power consumption of 45 watts and current flow of 10 amps?

The voltage V is equal to 45 watts divided by 10 amps:

*V* = 45W / 10A = 4.5V

The voltage V in volts (V) is equal to the current I in amperes (A) times the resistance R in ohms (Ω):

*V*_{(V)} = *I*_{(A)} ⋅ *R*_{(Ω)}

What is the voltage supply of an electrical circuit that has current flow of 3 amps and resistance of 16 ohms?

According to ohm's law the voltage V is equal to 3 amps times 16 ohms:

*V* = 3A × 16Ω = 48V

What is the voltage supply of an electrical circuit that has current flow of 3 amps and resistance of 20 ohms?

According to ohm's law the voltage V is equal to 3 amps times 20 ohms:

*V* = 3A × 20Ω = 60V

The resistance R in ohms (Ω) is equal to the voltage V in volts (V) divided by the current I in amperes (A):

*R*_{(Ω)} = *V*_{(V)}* / I*_{(A)}

What is the resistance of an electrical circuit that has voltage supply of 12 volts and current flow of 0.2 amp?

The resistance R is equal to 12 volts divided by 0.2 amp:

*R* = 12V / 0.2A = 60Ω

The power P in kilowatts (kW) is equal to the current I in amps (A) times the voltage V in volts (V) divided by 1000:

*P*_{(kW)} = *I*_{(A)} ⋅ *V*_{(V)} / 1000

What is power consumption in kW when the current is 5A and the voltage supply is 110V?

Answer: the power P is equal to current of 5 amps times the voltage of 110 volts, divided by 1000.

*P* = 5A × 110V / 1000 = 0.55kW

The apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA) is equal to RMS current I_{RMS} in amps (A), times the RMS voltage V_{RMS} in volts (V), divided by 1000:

*S*_{(kVA)} = *I*_{RMS(A)} ⋅ *V*_{RMS}_{(V)}* */ 1000

The electric charge Q in coulombs (C) is equal to the current I in amps (A), times the time of current flow t in seconds (s):

*Q*_{(C)} = *I*_{(A)} ⋅ *t*_{(s)}
