Paul,
A coulomb is a quanity of electorns. In theory
current is a measurment of those electrons in
motion as respect to doing work. Your answer is
.... YES..

A coulomb is 6.25 X (10 to the 18th power) of
electrons.

When you have those (same mentioned quantity of
electrons) potential difference you have a 1 volt
difference in force.

Therefore,as you have quickly grasped, one coulomb
difference in potential is one volt.

Now, this potential difference is required to
produce amperage (current).

Well, guess what, when one coulomb of electrons
pass a given point we have 1 amp of current.
Actually we wait and call it an amp if it happens
that it is one coulomb moving per second.

Does that help?
