2 1. Electric Current Definition: Electric current is flow of electric charge . The SI unit of current is 1 ampere (A). One ampere is the rate of flow of 1 coulomb of charge per second. T he current of 1ampere is the flow of 6.25 billion billion electrons per second ! Hydraulic analogy! Wires pipes Current water mass flow rate Potential water pressure. Voltage or potential difference - A difference in pressure between two points Electric Potential or Voltage How electric current can be created? Answer: Create electrical pressure! This electrical pressure is called electric potential or voltage . Voltage and Potential Energy Voltage creates potential energy to the charge: Potential Energy = Voltage × Charge. This potential energy is then transformed into kinetic energy of moving charges moving charges.
