I know one mA is 0.001 Amp and this is one thousandth.


And one hundredth is 0.01 but what is the Symbole or Letter for it?

It's a centiamp and the symbol is cA. Although very seldom used.

As Animal said, the symbol is cA from centiamp (Coming from the metric system) but is rarelly used. Usually you go from 0-999 mA and then jump to Amp without nothing in between. Of course, what units you use in your calculations is entirely up to you and any professional is able to switch from 0.005 amps to 5mA
