# Linear Charge Density Converter

Linear Charge Density describes the distribution of electric charge along a one-dimensional line. It measures the amount of electric charge per unit length along a straight line or a linear object, such as a wire or rod.

Linear Charge Density is denoted by the symbol λ (lambda) and is defined as the amount of electric charge (Q) present per unit length (L) along a linear object and is expressed in coulombs per meter (C/m).

Below are the definitions of the most commonly used units of linear charge density and their conversion factors:

• Coulomb / Meter (C/m): The coulomb per meter represents one coulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along a meter-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 C/m = 1 C/m

• Coulomb / Centimeter (C/cm): The coulomb per centimeter represents one coulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along a centimeter-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 C/cm = 100 C/m

• Coulomb / Inch (C/in): The coulomb per inch represents one coulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along an inch-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 C/m = 1 / 0.0254 C/in ≈ 39.3701 C/in

• Abcoulomb / Meter (abC/m): The abcoulomb per meter is a unit used in the CGS system and it represents one abcoulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along a meter-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 abC/m = 10 C/m

• Abcoulomb / Centimeter (abC/cm): The abcoulomb per centimeter is another unit used in the CGS system, representing one abcoulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along a centimeter-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 abC/cm = 10 C/cm

• Abcoulomb / Inch (abC/in): The abcoulomb per inch is yet another unit used in the CGS system, representing one abcoulomb of electric charge distributed uniformly along an inch-long linear object.
Conversion Factor: 1 abC/in = 10 C/in
