### A coulomb is a measure of what whereas an ampere is a measure of what?

Is a coulomb a measure of quantity whereas an ampere is a
measure of rate?
Answer
The coulomb is the SI derived unit for electric
charge. The ampere is the SI base unit for electric
current.
The coulomb is defined in terms of the ampere and the
second. The ampere is defined in terms of the newton and the
metre.

### A coulomb is a measure of where as an ampere is a measure of?

A coulomb is a measure of electrical charge, specifically that
one coulomb is approximately 6.24 x 1018 protons or (negatively)
electrons.
An ampere, on the other hand, is a measure of electrical flow,
in coulombs per second.
Comment
The ampere is actually defined in terms of the
newton and the metre, not the coulomb and the
second.

###### Asked in Physics

### How you define 1 ampere unit of current?

The official definition is currently that one ampere is "the
constant current that will produce an attractive force of 2 Ã— 10-7
newton per metre of length between two straight, parallel
conductors of infinite length and negligible circular cross section
placed one metre apart in a vacuum". The coulomb (unit of charge)
is derived from the ampere.
To visualize electrical current, it is more convenient to think
of it the other way - the coulomb is a certain number of charged
particles (electrons,...

### How can you define temperature in terms of mass and length and time?

All units can be decomposed into the fundamental units of mass,
length, and time. Some would also add the fundamental unit of
charge, which used to be the coulomb but is now, I think,
the ampere1. For example, the watt is a
joule per second; the joule is a newton-meter;
the newton is a kilogram-meter squared per second
squared2. You will have to do a similar decomposition of
a Kelvin (or a degree Celsius or Fahrenheit). 1. The ampere was
once defined as...

### How can you find the force acting on a charge of x coulombs in an electric field of y micro coulomb?

First we must know where the charge x coulomb has been placed.
Without that data we cannot find the required.

###### Asked in Speed of Light

### What does the speed of light depend on as it passes through a substance?

Whatever light is traveling through, whether vacuum or some
material medium,
its speed depends on the electrical characteristics of that
environment, specifically
its electrostatic permittivity and magnetic permeability.
Those are measurable properties of empty space and of any
substance. The
speed of light through it is the reciprocal of the square root
of the product
of those quantities. Which shouldn't be too surprising, since we
know now
that light and other electromagnetic waves consist of traveling
electrostatic
and magnetic fields.
Try it for yourself. The electrostatic permittivity of free

### What is the dimensional formula of R in the relation V equals IR?

This is not entirely straightforward. Voltage and Resistance are
both forces and thus have the dimensions:-
Mass x Length / Time squared i.e. MLT -2
Electric current (in Amperes) is the number of electric charges
(in Coulombs) passing a point in a unit time and so ought to have
the dimensions:-
1 (unit) / Time i.e. T -1
Writing out the equation V = IR using these dimensions
gives:-
MLT -2 = MLT -3

### What fundamental quantities constitute 1 ampere of electric current?

The ampere is an SI base unit and is not defined in terms of

put forward (2005), though still not ratified (2014) that would
indeed define an ampere in terms of charge and time. Since the
second is a fundamental unit and an electron a fundamental particle
it is proposed to define an ampere as the rate of flow of
fundamental charges. It is equivalent to 1 coulomb...
