## How to Convert Biots to Amperes

To convert a biot measurement to an ampere measurement, multiply the electric current by the conversion ratio.

Since one biot is equal to 10 amperes, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The electric current in amperes is equal to the biots multiplied by 10.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 biots to amperes using the formula above.

### How Many Amperes are in a Biot?

There are **10** amperes in a biot, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Bi = 10 A

Biots and amperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Biots

The biot is a unit of electrical current named for Jean-Baptiste Biot. One biot is equal to one abampere.

A biot is sometimes also referred to as an abampere. Biots can be abbreviated as *Bi*; for example, 1 biot can be written as 1 Bi.

## Amperes

The ampere, commonly referred to as an "amp," is the electrical current constant equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The ampere was previously defined as a constant current that when passed through two straight and parallel conductors that are spaced one meter apart, will produce a force equal to 0.0000002 newtons per meter of length.

In 2019, the ampere was redefined as the electric current corresponding to the flow of 1/(1.602 176 634 × 10^{-19}) elementary charges per second.^{[1]}

The ampere is the SI base unit for electric current in the metric system. An ampere is sometimes also referred to as an amp. Amperes can be abbreviated as *A*; for example, 1 ampere can be written as 1 A.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the current in amperes as an expression using resistance and voltage.

I_{A} = V_{V}R_{Ω}

The current in amperes is equal to the potential difference in volts divided by the resistance in ohms.
