The SI unit of Ampere, denoted A, is by definition the number of charges passing a unit cross section per time unit. For most electrical circuits, this is condensed into the amount of charges passing a point of a wire during a given time interval.

1 Ampere is defined as the flow of 6.241 * 10^18 electrons per second, and is commonly considered to be relatively large current. It can also be of interest to know that 6.241 * 10^18 electrons is defined as 1 Coulomb (C). Hence,

1 A = 1 C / s.

I hope this answers your question about the SI unit Ampere! Good luck!

Amp is a measurement used to quantify the amount of electric charge passing a point in an electrical circuit.

Just as seconds are a measurement of time, amp's are a measurement of current flow. With that in mind you use a clock to measure time and an ammeter or galvanometer to measure current.

Amp is the unit of Current which is used to quantify the value of the charges passing through a point in one second.If one Coulomb charge passes through a point in one second then there will be one ampere current.
Hope you will get it because it is the most simplified form to tell someone other

Electrical current is measured in amperage (amps) it is a rate of charge (coulombs) passed in a given time. for example: you have driven 100 miles (charge) You drove 100 miles per hour (current)

What does an amp measure? An amp meter measures the electrical current (amperage), that flow through the electrical wire.

An ampere measures electrical current. Basically, how much electric charge passes a point each second.
