Unit dA
Name deciampere
Category Electric Current
Details A deciampere (dA) is a unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). It represents one-tenth (1/10) of an ampere (A), which is the base unit of electric current in the SI system. In other words, 1 dA is equal to 0.1 A. The term "deci-" is a metric prefix that denotes a factor of 10^(-1) or 1/10.

The electric current is the flow of electric charge in a medium, such as a conductor or a circuit. It is typically measured in amperes or its multiples or submultiples like deciamperes, milliamperes, microamperes, etc. In the context of an electrical circuit, a current of 1 deciampere means that a charge of 0.1 coulombs is flowing through the circuit per second.
