# How to Convert Current and Current Calculator

** How to Convert Current and Current Calculator** - In this article we will learn how to change or convert a current value from one unit to another.

This article is equipped with a brief description and a calculator for the conversion of electric currents.

# How to Convert Current

## A. Metric Prefix

Tabel Konversi Metric Prefix |

A prefix metric is used to replace the Power of Ten or number 10 into a number which is used in technical notation.

Metric Prefix is only used for values that have units of measurement such as Voltage, Amperes, and Ohms.

This metric prefix is placed before the symbol unit. This Metric Prefix function makes it easier for us to convey a single value.

Now that we know the metric prefix and its values, we start learning how to convert electric current.

## B. Examples of Current Converting

- If converting from a high value to a low value unit, move the decimal point (comma) to the right.
- If converting from a low value unit to a high value unit, then move the decimal point (comma) to the left.
- Determine the number of places where the decimal point is moved by finding the difference to the power of ten converted units.

- Try converting 0.35 milliampere (mA) to microampere (uA)!
- Try converting 6200 microamperes ((uA) to milliamperes (mA)!

mA to uA has a difference of 1000, so move the decimal point 3 steps or 3 times to the right.

uA to mA has a difference of 1000s, so move the decimal point 3 steps or 3 times to the left.

Likewise other units have the same basic rules. Note the amount of difference in the table (picture) metrix prefix above.
