In summary, electron flow is calculated by dividing the total charge by the time taken, with the formula I = Q/t. The unit of measurement for electron flow is amperes (A), and it can be calculated in other units of time such as milliseconds, microseconds, or hours. Electron flow is not a constant value and can vary depending on the circuit and materials used. It is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance, according to Ohm's Law.

Right. An Ampere is one Coulomb of charge per second. How many electrons make up one Coulomb?mp252 said:1a=1c/1s

Electron flow is calculated by dividing the total charge by the time taken. The formula for calculating electron flow is: I = Q/t, where I is the current in amperes (A), Q is the charge in coulombs (C), and t is the time in seconds (s).

The unit of measurement for electron flow is amperes (A). This unit measures the rate of flow of electric charge, or the amount of charge passing through a point in a circuit per unit time.

Yes, electron flow can be calculated in other units of time such as milliseconds (ms), microseconds (μs), or even hours (h). It is important to use the appropriate unit of time in the formula for accurate results.

No, electron flow can vary depending on the circuit and the materials used. In a closed circuit, the electron flow will be constant, but in an open circuit, there will be no electron flow. The resistance of the materials also affects the rate of electron flow.

According to Ohm's Law, the rate of electron flow (current) is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance in a circuit. This means that an increase in voltage will result in an increase in electron flow, while an increase in resistance will decrease the electron flow.
