A Number Of Charged Particles...

a: Coulomb ~

b: a dozen only many, many more

What: "A Coulomb is like a dozen only many, many more. You can refer to a coulomb of electrons in the same way as a dozen donuts. A Coulomb would then describe something about that dozen donuts, in this case, the amount of charge. Ampere is defined as a coulomb per second. However, in general we do not count electrons or measure seconds, simply use the Amp. The unit symbol for ampere is A and the formula symbol (letter used in equations) for current is I."

A Unit Of Measure.....

a: Coulomb ~

b: the gallon

What: "So the coulomb is like the gallon because it is a more convenient way to measure large quantities of small things. But when speaking in electrical terms, there is a more convenient way to show the equivalent of gallons per minute. We use a term called the "ampere." One coulomb per second is the flow rate of one ampere. Amperes are often abbreviated as "amps." Electrical current, "I", is measured in amps and here "Ie" will also be given in amps."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
