Electric Circuits - Mission EC1 Detailed Help

If 5 coulombs of charge flow past point 'A' in a circuit in 4 seconds, then ____ coulombs of charge will flow past point 'A' in 8 seconds.


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.
