3 5 Electrical Circuit 1.2. Circuits, Currents and Voltages (1) Basic concepts Voltage v [V: volts] Current i [A: amperes] Resistance R [ : ohms] Charge q [C: coulombs] dq dq dt dt Electric current is the time rate of charge flow. i = dq/dt [C/s=As/s=A] 6 Charge q is an electrical property of the atomic particles. one electron charge q is 1.6 x10 -19 C ; or one C of charge requires 6.24 x 10 18 electrons Law of conservation of charge: charge cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred. Current is conserved. i o i 1 i o = i = i 1 + i + i 2 i 2 (a) Current is physically realized by movement of electrons.
