Why Battery rating in Ah (Ampere hour) and not in VA.
Battery stores charge in the form of chemical energy and then converts it into electrical energy to utilize for a specific time. The amount of available charge is the capacity of a cell or battery which may be expressed in Ah (Ampere-hour). Moreover, in a charged battery, the numbers of molecules are limited to create a flow of electron in electric circuits, so, there must be a limited number of electrons in a cell/battery which they motivate through a circuit to fully discharge. Now we have the option to rate the battery capacity in Number of flowing electrons for a specific time, but, it would be a headache, because there are a vast number of electrons in it. So we have another option (1C (Coulomb) = 6.25 x 1018 electrons, or 6,250,000,000,000,000,000 electrons. In addition, 1A (Ampere) = 1 coulomb of electrons per second and, 1h = 3600 Seconds Therefore; 1Ah = (1A) x (3600s) = (C/s) x (3600s) = 3600 C. ? A (1 Ampere) = 1 Coulomb per second = C/s But, Why make up a new unit for battery capacity rating when an old one unit is doing just fine? L Of course! To make your lives as technicians and students more difficult. As they do for electricity units… i.e. 1 Unit of Electricity = 1kWh = 1 board of Trade Unit
