5/13/09 Units of Charge 1 Coulomb ( C ) = amount of charge that flows past a point in a wire during one second when the current in the wire is one ampere (amp or A). 1 e = 1.60217653 x 10-19 C 1 C equal to charge on 6.241509 x 1018 electrons. 1 C is big charge . Force on two 1 C charges 1 m apart is 8.99 x 109 N.
