Coulombs to Ampere-hours. Joules to Kilowatthours

Coulombs are the usual unit of charge. Show that ampere-hours are an alternative unit.
Joules are the normal units for energy. Show that kilowatthours are an alternative.

Don't understand how o do this. Please answer and explain thanks.

Hi george

1. Do you know the formula relating charge, current, and time?
2. Do you know the formula relating energy, power, and time?

Thumbs up

hello george,
this my first post in this forum,
i had read the rules and did not find a rule that prohibit direct answer questions of other members asking for answers.

charge, time and current are related as follows:
I=dq/dt in other words : Ampere=coulomb/second
so we can write this:
coulomb=ampere * second
because hour=3600 second so charge (coulomb) can be expressed by ampere hour (ampere*hour)

and about your second question:
puissane is energy per second , ie: puissance=energy/time
this leads to: energy=puissance * time
we know that the unit of energy is joul, the unit of puissance is watt, unit of time is second.
so joul can be expressed by watt second , or killowatt second , or as you asked killowatt hour

i hope i could explain it to you well (english is not my native language)

Welcome to PHF.
You should read once again the part

Songoku was trying to get George started. But with your full answer you just put songoku's help useless.
I hope it won't happen again. I do support your help, but not a full answer when the OP didn't show any work. Songoku's approach is in agreement with the rules while yours isn't. Thanks for your comprehension.
