A coulomb (C) measures the amount of charge collected by one Ampere of electric current in one second. This electric current (or electricity) is created by the movement of electrons. If one coulomb measures electricity, how many electrons can you find in a coulomb of electricity?

## How many electrons are in a coulomb?

** 1 C contains approximately 6.24 x 10^{18} electrons. **Simply put, this value is 6,241,509,070,000,000,000 electrons.

## How many electrons are in 2 coulombs?

2 C charge contains **1.25 × 10^{19} electrons**. This value is a product of the amount of Coulomb charge and the number of electrons in 1 C.

## How many electrons are in a microcoulomb?

A microcoulomb (micro C) contains approximately **6.25 x 10^{12} electrons.**

1 micro C = 10^{-6} x 6.24 x 10^{18} = 6.25 x 10^{12}

## How many moles of electrons are in a coulomb?

One mole of electron equals 96,500C, which is equal to 1 Faraday.

1 C would, therefore, contain

1 mole of electron = 96,500C

X moles of electrons = 1 C

1 C will contain 1/96,500C

1 C will contain 1.036 x 10^{-18}

## FAQs

### How many protons are in 1 coulomb?

1 coulomb charge contains** 6.24 x 10 ^{18} protons**.

### What is the charge of 1 electron?

1 electron has a charge of** 1.602 × 10 ^{-19} coulombs**. An electron (-e) is a negatively charged particle in any atom.

### What is the largest unit of charge?

The **Faraday (approximately 96,500C) **is the largest unit of charge in chemistry.

## Conclusion

Electricity cannot work without the movement of electrons. And this electrical charge generated is measured in Coulomb.

1 C is approximately 6.24 x 10^{18} particles (6,241,509,070,000,000,000). To measure more than one Coulomb, find the product of the number of Coulombs and 6.24 x 10^{18}.
