# what is the velocity of current and motion of current

Velocity of current and motion of current is same or different??

the velocity of current is the same of light,  that value is about 300000km/ sec...That's 300 millions per meter per sec..

Velocity  of  current  is  a scalar  quantity  which  may imply an AC current   while   motion  current  is  a  vector  quantity  or a  DC  current.

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 is the difference between AC and DC current ?

Answer : AC is generated using Alternator. DC is generated using DC generator. AC changes its direction periodically. DC do not change its direction periodically. AC have non zero frequency. DC have zero ... Power factor of AC is between 0 and 1. But power factor of DC is always 1.

Answer : Direct current is the flow of electricity or charge in one direction..  Alternative current is the flow of charge that doesn't flow in one direction.
