1. Electrical charge is measured in

• A. amps
• B. volts
• C. ohms
• D. coulombs

2. The formula to calculate charge is

• A. charge = current x time ( Q = I.t )

• B. charge = current ÷ time    (Q = I/t )

• C. charge = current ÷ voltage    (Q = I/V )

• D. charge = voltage x current     ( Q = V.I )
