# Electric Current Units Converter

Coversion factor: 1 A = 0.001 kA

## Additional information

Electric current is the flow of electric charge through a conductor, such as a wire. It is caused by the movement of charged particles, typically electrons, within a conductive material. Electric current is a fundamental concept in physics and a key aspect of electromagnetism.

The standard unit for electric current in the International System of Units (SI) is the ampere (A). It is defined as one coulomb of electric charge passing through a conductor in one second.
