It is equal to a rate of flow of electricity of one coulomb per second.
The letters are brilliant, and Mrs. coulomb is sometimes worsted in them.
coulomb was the maker of the first instrument for measuring a current, which was known as the torsion balance.
It is because of this pioneer work that coulomb deserves so much praise.
In 1789, however, the Revolution broke out, and there was an end to all coulomb's opportunities for work.
Unfortunately coulomb was not long spared to continue his work.
The coulomb is the unit quantity of electricity just as the unit of quantity of water is the gallon.
A delicate instrument, invented by coulomb, for measuring the intensities of the electrical and magnetic forces.
coulomb's memoirs on electricity and magnetism were published from 1782 to 1789.
The capacity of a condenser which would contain a charge of one coulomb under one volt pressure is the farad.
1881, named for French chemist Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (1736-1806), who devised a method of measuring electrical quantity. It is the quantity of electricity conveyed in 1 second by a current of 1 ampere. The name is a French form of Columbus.
coulomb cou·lomb (kōō'lŏm', -lōm')
The unit of electrical charge in the meter-kilogram-second system equal to the quantity of charge transferred in one second by a steady current of one ampere.
The SI derived unit used to measure electric charge. One coulomb is equal to the quantity of charge that passes through a cross-section of a conductor in one second, given a current of one ampere.
|Coulomb, Charles Augustin de 1736-1806. |
French physicist who was a pioneer in the study of magnetism and electricity. He is best known for the formulation of Coulomb's law, which he developed as a result of his investigations of Joseph Priestley's work on electrical repulsion. Coulomb also established a law governing the attraction and repulsion of magnetic poles. The coulomb unit of electric charge is named for him.
