1881, "current this one volt can deliver through one ohm," from French amp
an old product of household current (a little smaller than the SI ampere)
- the basic device of electric energy adopted beneath the Systeme Global d'Unites
- Alt. of Ampere
- The unit of electric energy; -- defined because of the International electric Congress in 1893 and also by U. S. Statute as, one tenth of this unit of existing associated with C. G. S. system of electro-magnetic units, and/or useful equivalent of the unvarying up-to-date which, whenever passed away through a standard answer of nitrate of gold in liquid, build up gold on price of 0.001118 grms per second. Called additionally the worldwide ampere.
Abbreviated as amp, ampere may be the product of dimension for electrical current in coulombs (6.25 * 1018 electrons) per second. One ampere may be the result of a circuit with one ohm resistance and something volt being used.
amp [short for: ampere]
product of electric present; one ampere equals one coulomb per second.
(letter.) Alt. of Ampere
- (letter.) The system of electric current; -- defined by the Overseas electric Congress in 1893 and by U. S. Statute since, one tenth associated with product of existing for the C. G. S. system of electro-magnetic products, or the useful exact carbon copy of the unvarying current which, whenever passed away through a typical solution of nitrate of silver in water, deposits gold in the price of 0.001118 grams per second. Known as also the intercontinental ampere.
Kelvin ampere balances are made in two types - (i) a variable weight type suitable for obtaining the ampere value of any current within their range; and (2) a fixed weight type intended to indicate when a current which can be varied at pleasure has a certain fixed value.
