## Current From Charge Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Current From Charge.

I = Q / dT

- Where I is the Current From Charge (amps)
- Q is the total charge (C)
- dT is the change in time (s)

To calculate current from charge, divide the total charge by the total time.

## How to Calculate Current From Charge?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Current From Charge.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total charge (C). In this example, the total charge (C) is measured to be 140.
- Next, determine the change in time (s). For this problem, the change in time (s) is calculated to be 23.
- Finally, calculate the Current From Charge using the formula above:

I = Q / dT

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

I = 140 / 23 = 6.086 (amps)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

total charge (C) = 290

change in time (s) = 50

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

I = 290 / 50 = 5.8 (amps)
