Surface Current Density Units

The surface current density units in the converter are abampere/square centimeter, ampere/square centimeter, ampere/square inch, ampere/square meter and ampere/square mil.

The most commonly used units for surface current density, which measures the electric current per unit width along a conducting path, are:

Ampere per meter (A/m): This is the standard unit for surface current density in the International System of Units (SI). It represents the electric current flowing through one meter of a surface.

Ampere per centimeter (A/cm): In some contexts, especially in older literature or specific applications, the ampere per centimeter-based unit may be used.

These units are used to describe the distribution of electric current along a surface. The ampere per meter is the standard unit for surface current density in scientific and engineering contexts. The ampere per centimeter is less commonly used in modern scientific literature but may still be encountered in specific applications.

What is Surface Current Density?

The electric surface current density is defined as the amount of electric current per unit of area.
