  1. Apr 30, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the value of 3.0 coulobms per second in Amps?

    3. The attempt at a solution
    amps are coulombs per second, so its just 3 right? I just want to make sure this isnt some kind of trick. thanks for any input.

    Only trick is making it too simple :wink:
    (Almost similar case with asking student to convert -40oF into Celcius. Just happens to work out that it's also -40, so poor student wastes the rest of the test trying to find his nonexistant error...)
    Oh, yeah. Keep track of significant figures, also. Other than that, you're right on!
