# what is current?

what is current?

The flow of charge is called current
Mathematical   I = q/t

Current is the flow of electrons through a conductor, measured in amperes

Current the flow of charge, measured in amperes (1 ampere = 1 coulomb/second)

Current is the flow of electrons in a conductor.the flow electrons due to the voltage applied to it.the unit of current is Ampere or coulomb/sec.

Flow of free electrons

Description : What kills, current or voltage?

Answer : Current would kill. You can actually have thousands of bolts going through you and not even know it. Yes you probably know already voltage is current times resistance. Since your body is a resistor it would take just a small amount of current to create a very high voltage

Description : What is the relationship between power and current?

Answer : P = I2R Where P = power I = Current R = Resistance This the relationship between current and power.

Description : What happens to the resistance when the current increases?

Answer : Resistance  reduces  when  current  increases.

Description : What is the difference between eddy current and hysteresis loss?

Answer : Loss occurred by magnetising and demagnetising process is called histerisis loss and the current flowed due to the magnetic field produced by the electric field applied is called eddy current losses

Description : What happens when a current flows through a wire?

Answer : Current can produce two effect one is heating effect and second is magnetic effect.
