Here we are given 3.1 amperes of current and are asked to find the time it takes 10 coulombs of charge to pass a given point. First ask yourself how many coulombs are passing a given point in one second. If we have 3.1 amperes of current, we have 3.1 coulombs of charge passing any given point in one second. If it takes 1 second for 3.1 coulombs of charge to pass, how long will it take for 10C of charge to pass?
