Coulomb

Postby Sean Ezenwugo 3J » Sun Jan 31, 2016 5:03 pm

It says in the course reader that a volt is a joule of work per coulomb of charge. What is a coulomb, and is it described anywhere in the course reader? Thanks.

I don't think it's written anywhere in the course reader, but Dr. Lavelle said one coulomb is equivalent to the charge of 10^18 electrons

A coulomb is described on pg. 48 of the course reader. It says:
1 coulomb is the amount of electrical charge in 6.24X10^18 electrons.

A coulomb is an SI unit of charge, as 1C = 1A x 1s, the charge transported at a constant current one ampere in one second, and is equivalent to the charge of 6.242x10^18 electrons
