## Solution

Given: Current, $$I = 0.5\ A$$
time, $$t = 10 \ min = 10×60\ s = 600\ s$$
To find: The amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit.
Solution:
Let the total charge flown = $$Q$$
$$I=\frac{Q}{t}$$
$$Q=I\times t$$
$$Q=0.5\times 600$$
$$Q=300\ C$$
Hence, the amount of electric charge that flows through the circuit is $$300\ C$$.
