In the previous segment, we have understood How electric current is measured. In this segment, we will learn to solve a word problem based on measuring electric current.

## Problem

Q. A current of 200 mA is drawn by a load for 6 minutes. Find the amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit.

## Given:

Electric current (I) = 200 mA Time (t) = 6 mins

To find: Charge (Q)

Formula: ? = ?/?

## Solution:

? = 200 ?? = 200/1000 ? = 0.2 ?

? = 6 ???? = 6 ? 60 ? = 360?

? = ?/? 0.2 = ?/360

? = 0.2 ? 360 = 72?

? = 72?

Therefore, the amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit is 72 coulombs.

## What’s Next?

In the next segment of Class 10 Science, we will learn about the Electric potential difference.
