›› Definition: Picocoulomb

The SI prefix "pico" represents a factor of 10-12, or in exponential notation, 1E-12.

So 1 picocoulomb = 10-12 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 6.2415061018 times the charge of an electron. It is named after Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (1736-1806).
