Coulomb

Coulomb

(Science: physics) standard unit of electric charge representing one mole of electrons. A single electron or proton has a charge of (_/-) 1.60217733E-19 coulombs, with an uncertainty of.30 ppm. Hence there are 6.2414E_18 electrons in a coulomb of electrons. A unit of electrical charge equal to the amount of charge transferred by a current of 1 ampere in 1 second.

... presenting results for the canonical specific heat capacity for clusters of size up to Na_139^+. With the orbital-based approach, we simulate the Coulomb fission of highly charged sodium clusters with charges close to and above the Rayleigh limit of Coulomb stability. Growth mechanism revealed ...

The Fiber Disease

... simulations with explicit solvent of charge perturbations in biomolecules was slow in the early 1990s because of the widespread use of truncated Coulomb potentials in these simulations, among other factors. Development of the sophisticated technology described in this review to handle the long-range ...
