#### Picocoulombs to Coulombs

One trillionth the charge transported by a constant current of one ampere per second. 1 Picocoulomb = 10-12 coulombs (SI base unit). 1 pC = 0.000 000 000 001 C. Charge transported by a constant current of one ampere per second. Coulomb is the SI base unit of electric charge.

To convert a picocoulomb measurement to a coulomb measurement, divide the electric charge by the conversion ratio.

Since one coulomb is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 picocoulombs, you can use this simple formula to convert:

coulombs = picocoulombs ÷ 1,000,000,000,000

The electric charge in coulombs is equal to the picocoulombs divided by 1,000,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000,000 picocoulombs to coulombs using the formula above.

5,000,000,000,000 pC = (5,000,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000,000) = 5 C

#### Picocoulombs

The picocoulomb is 1/1,000,000,000,000 of a coulomb, which is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

The picocoulomb is a multiple of the coulomb, which is the SI derived unit for electric charge. In the metric system, "pico" is the prefix for 10-12. Picocoulombs can be abbreviated as pC; for example, 1 picocoulomb can be written as 1 pC.

#### Coulombs

One coulomb is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

The coulomb can be expressed as QC = IA × ts

The charge in coulombs is equal to the current in amperes times the time in seconds.

The coulomb is the SI derived unit for electric charge in the metric system. Coulombs can be abbreviated as C; for example, 1 coulomb can be written as 1 C.
