(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given a 15A breaker, what is the max number of coulombs that can flow through before the breaker trips?

2. Relevant equations

i = dq/dt

A = C/s

3. The attempt at a solution

No time value is given so I can't integrate dq = i dt from any limits.

Is the right thing to just say it's 15 coulombs if we assume that the breaker will trip in a second?

Thanks
