The coulomb (unit seembol: C) is the SI derived unit o electric charge (seembol: Q or q). It is defined as the chairge transported bi a constant current o ane ampere in ane seicont:

Ane coulomb is an aa the amoont o excess chairge on the positive side o a capacitor o ane farad chairged tae a potential difference o ane volt:
