Electric Circuits - Mission EC1 Detailed Help

If 6 coulombs of charge flow past point A in a circuit in 3 seconds, then the current at point A is ___.

Definition of Electric Current:
Electric current 
is the rate at which charge flows past a point on a circuit. Mathematically, current is the quantity of charge that passes through a cross-sectional area on a circuit per unit of time.

The electric current (I) at a given point on a circuit is the quantity of charge (Q) that flows past that point per unit of time (t):
I = Q / t.
