1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If the current in an electric conductor is 2.4A, how many coulombs of charge pass any point in a 30 second interval?

2. Relevant equations
A = C/s

3. The attempt at a solution
I just want to make sure that I am doing this right. If my current is 2.4 A then I can write this as 2.4 C/s and then multiply by the 30 second interval.
2.4 X 30 = 72 Coulombs is this the correct method?

I would be careful how you state your expression. I think you meant 1 A = 1 C/s. Is that right? The rest of your thought process looks correct to me.
