1/29/12 4 Electric Current Electrostatic Equilibrium Steady-State Convention: Current arrow is drawn in direction in which positive charge carriers would move, even if the actual charges are negative & move in the opposite direction. Battery + - D. Bortoletto PHYS221 Current is defined as the rate of flow of charge through an area. s C 1 A 1 (A). ampere the is for unit SI = Δ Δ = I t Q I
