 Kunal said: (Jan 29, 2011) 1micro amp.=10^-6 & 1MA=10^-3. so for converting it multiplied 0.16*10^3=160micro amp.

 Rohit said: (Feb 9, 2011) But how?

 Lekha said: (Mar 5, 2011) 0.16 mA=0.16*10^(-3)=16*10^(-5) in order to covert that into micro amps just multiply and devide by 10. so that u'l get 160*1o^(-6)=160 micro amps. since i micro amp is 10^(-6).

 Pavani said: (Jan 31, 2012) Explain briefly.

 Debashri said: (Mar 6, 2012) 0.16x10^-3/10^-6 =0.16x10^-3x10^6 =0.16x10^3 =0.16x1000 =160.00 =160microA

 Priyanka Halu said: (Jan 22, 2013) Given: 0.16*10^-3 We want in 10^-6, so multiply and divide given number by 10^-6 =>0.16*10^-3*(10^-6)/(10^-6) =>0.16*10^3*10^-6 =>160*10^-6 Answer B. Given: 0.16*10^-3 Shift decimal by 3 places, we get 160*10^-3*10^-3 =160*10^-6 Answer B.

 Naresh said: (Sep 1, 2013) 0.16x10^-3/10^-6 = 0.16x10^-3x10^6. = 0.16x10^3. = 0.16x1000. = 160.00. = 160 microA.

 Mohasin said: (Feb 6, 2014) 1 micro A = 1000 mA. So, 1000 multiply 0.16. = 160 micro amp.

 Prince Janesh Unique said: (Jul 30, 2014) fundamentals. 10^-6A = 1µA. 10^-3 = 1mA. 0.16*10^-3 = 160 microamperes.

 Mahbub said: (May 24, 2015) 0.16*10^-3*10^6 = 160 microampers.

 Ramesh said: (Dec 21, 2015) Right way @naresh.

 Naresh said: (Feb 22, 2016) 0.16*10^-3a right, (0.16*10^-3 means 16*10^-5a right. That means 1.6 micro amps.

 Md Jakir Hosen said: (Aug 28, 2016) 1mA = 10^-3, So, 0.16 mA = 0.16 * 10^-3 = 1.6 * 10^-04, Now we know 1microamp = 10^-6. So the result is (1.6 * 10^-04/10^-6) = 160microamp.

 Sharad said: (Feb 20, 2017) I think the answer should be 0.00016 micro amp.

 Bharath said: (Feb 21, 2017) 0.16 * 10^-3/10^-6 = 160micro ampere.

 Vengatesh said: (Feb 23, 2017) (0.16 * 10^-3 * 10^-6)/10^-6 = 160micro ampere.

 Navin said: (Jul 9, 2017) First, we have to convert it 0.16mA to ampere. 0.16/10^-3 = 160A, Now convert it to uA.

 Sivapritha said: (Aug 12, 2017) 0.16mA=0.16*10^-3. =16*10^-3/100. = 16*10^-3/(10*10). =16*10^-3*10^-1/10. =16*10^-4/10. =16*10^-4*10^-1. =16*10^-5. That next quanties micro when we add this to -1 to the power it will be come so right side add one zero that is 160*10^-6A= 160micro amps++.

 Sateesh said: (Nov 13, 2017) 0.16*10^-3*10^-6/10^-6 = 0.16*10^-3 but how?

 Ravi Sunkari said: (Feb 14, 2019) @Mohasin. Explained very clearly. Thanks.

 Adil Raza said: (Aug 10, 2020) 1mA = 1000uA, 0.16mA = 1000 * 0.16. i.e = 160uA.
