# ››Definition: Millicoulomb

The SI prefix "milli" represents a factor of 10-3, or in exponential notation, 1E-3.

So 1 millicoulomb = 10-3 coulombs.

The definition of a coulomb is as follows:

he coulomb, symbol C, is the SI unit of electric charge, and is defined in terms of the ampere: 1 coulomb is the amount of electric charge (quantity of electricity) carried by a current of 1 ampere flowing for 1 second. It is also about 6.241506×1018 times the charge of an electron. It is named after Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (1736-1806).
