Unit MA
Name megaampere
Category Electric Current
Details In the field of electric current, a unit MA or Megaampere is a unit of measurement for electric current. One megaampere (MA) is equal to one million amperes (A), where the ampere is the base unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI).

Amperes are used to quantify the flow of electric charge through a conducting medium, such as a circuit or a conductor. A higher ampere value represents a stronger current or a higher flow of electric charge.

Megaamperes are used in situations where electric currents are extremely large, such as in high-powered research facilities, fusion experiments, or high-voltage power transmission lines. By using megaamperes, it becomes easier to express and handle very large current values without having to write down lengthy numbers.
