1 coulomb is the amount of electric charge carried by a current of 1 ampere flowing for 1 second.

1 C = 1 A · 1 s

It can also be defined in terms of capacitance and voltage, where one coulomb is defined as one farad of capacitance times one volt of electric potential difference:

      1 C = 1 F · 1 V
