Find the amount of electric charge flowing through the circuit if an electric current of 5 A is drawn by an electric appliance for 5 minutes.
Current, I = 5 ATime, t = 5 minutes = 60×5 = 300 secWe know that,
Current, I = Qt Therefore, 5 = Q300 Q = 300×5 C Q = 1500 C.
A current of 0.5 A is drawn by a filament of an electric bulb for 10 minutes. The amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit is:
