## Current From Current Density Formula

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

**I = ID * A**

- Where I is the Current From Current Density (amps)
- ID is the current density (amps/mm^2)
- A is the total area (mm^2)

## How to Calculate Current From Current Density?

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

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the current density (amps/mm^2). In this example, the current density (amps/mm^2) is measured to be 50.
- Next, determine the total area (mm^2). For this problem, the total area (mm^2) is calculated to be 12.
- Finally, calculate the Current From Current Density using the formula above:

I = ID * A

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

I = 50 * 12 = 600 (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:

current density (amps/mm^2) = 14

total area (mm^2) = 11

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

I = 14 * 11 = 154 (amps)
