SI base unit for the @E01927@ (symbol: \(\text{A}\)). The ampere is that constant current which, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross-section, and placed 1 @M03884@ apart in vacuum, would produce between these conductors a force equal to \(2\times 10^{-7}\) @N04135@ per @M03884@ of length (9th CGPM, 1948).
