Converting Coulombs->Charges and vice versa

  1. Feb 4, 2010 #1
    Hello all,

    Can anyone help me learn how to convert Coulombs to Charges and vice versa (Charges to Coulombs).

    My Prof has abadoned the class and we have a term test on Monday.

    Thank you for your help.

    What do you mean to 'charges'? Charge is measured in Coulombs.

    A coulomb consists of ~6.242×10^18 electron charges (aka elementary charge units). Therefore, an electron's charge is 1.602*10^-19 Coulombs.
