Dear Members,

As a electrical student i understood the current definition. But if i want to convey to a others i dont know hoe to explain. Can someone explaint the definition in simple format.

Regards,

Boopathi

It would be useful for you to post your explanation, so someone can aid you.

Current is a measure of the rate of flow of electrons.  1 Ampere is equal to 1 coulomb per second.  One coulomb is equal to 6.241 x 1018

electrons.

It is a flow of charges

current is the flow of electrons .each electron should posses its own charge.

Current is nothing but it is flow of electrons. If 6.24 x 1018 electrons flows a reference point in 1 second then it is said that 1 ampere current was flown.

This not a criticism of posts 3,4,5,&6., but what would someone understand from what is stated , even though what is stated is true. I think if the OP  says how he explained it , we can build on it. I think what you  UNDERSTAND is what is important.

current is a motion or vibration or flow of charge in a perticuler direction.

currend is a rate of fiow of electrons. 1 columb is eqal to 6.241*10^18(1 ampere is equal to one columb.

current is flow of charge……..the no.of columbs passed a point in one second………is called current

i.e., I=c/s…..current uints are columbs/second (or) amperes…..

for detailed information go through this video……it will be clear those who got dout

Hello,

Thank You!

The flow of free electron is called current.in otherword the rate of flow of electron i.e,charge flowing per second I=Q/t,

Simply,

Every metal(or even non metals) consist of electron which moves in random direction.if all the electrons flow in the same directon (due to applicaton of some external force) current is said to be flowing.

Hope, it is crystal clear to u.
