How it comes?

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

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).

Explain briefly.

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

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.

<or>

Given: 0.16*10^-3
Shift decimal by 3 places, we get
160*10^-3*10^-3
=160*10^-6
Answer B.

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.

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.
