Electric Current For an electric current of 1 ampere, 1 coulomb of electric charge (which consists of about 6.242 × 10 18 electrons) drifts every second through any plane through which the conductor passes. Electric current is an electric charge flow, it flows from higher electric potential for lower electric potential Time (s) Direct Current and Alternating Current Residental Power distribution
