How Many coulombs pass through each resistor in a circuit?

  1. Feb 25, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    My question relating to physics and electric circuits, is "If a circuit consists of a 12 volt battery and two ohm resistors connected in series, then how many Coulombs pass through each resistor in a second".

    Thank you all so very much.

    2. Relevant equations
    V=IR

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried using things such as "1 coulomb=6.25 x 10^18 to solve the problems but I just don't know how to.

    What do V, I, and R in Ohm's law stand for? How are coulombs related to Ohm's law?

    Volts=Current x Resistance

    What's the definition of 'current'? How is it measured? What are its units?
