Unit EA
Name exaampere
Category Electric Current
Details Unit EA, or Exaampere, is a unit used to measure electric current in the field of electricity and electronics. It is derived from the International System of Units (SI) prefix 'Exa' combined with the standard unit for measuring current, 'Ampere.'

Exa- is an SI prefix that represents a factor of 10^18 or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. Therefore, one Exaampere (EA) is equal to one quintillion (10^18) Amperes (A).

The Ampere (A) is the basic unit for measuring the flow of electric charge, or current, in a circuit. It represents the movement of one coulomb of charge per second through a conductor.

The unit Exaampere (EA) is not commonly used in daily life because the currents involved are extremely large (10^18 Amperes) and well beyond typical electrical applications. Exaampere measurements may be used in scenarios involving theoretical or extreme cases in physics, engineering, or research.
