**The Current**

Current is the flow of Electric Current

In Ohm's Law current is represented by the letter "I" and measured in Amperes or "Amps".

The current through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.

Mathematical Equation Formula:

I=V/R

Where; I= Current

V= Voltage

R= Resistance

We can think of the water tank as a good example of flowing current, where the amount of flowing water on the tank as the current. the higher the pressure the higher the flow and vice versa or the higher the voltage the higher the current for a constant resistance.

Examples in Calculating the Current

1. Calculate the amount of I for 12 000 V across 6,000,000Ω.

Given

V= 12000

R= 6000000Ω

I= ?

Solution

I= V/R

I= 12000V/6000000Ω

I= 0.002A or 2mA

2. How much current flows in an electric fan having a resistance of 35Ω when connected across a 250 V line?

Given

V= 250 V

R= 35Ω

I= ?

Solution

I=V/R

I= 250V/35Ω

I= 7.14 A

3.

Given

V= 110 V

R= 2200 Ω

I= ?

Solution

I=V/R

I=110/2200 Ω

I= 0.05 A

automatic ba na pagmay volatage dadaloy na ang current?

The word current is a Latin word currere, meaning “to run,” and its form cursus give us the roots curr and curs. Words from the Latin currere have something to do with running. A current is the direction in which a river runs or flows.

Yes, the current automatically flows on a conductor whenever voltage is present.

There are two different types of current in widespread use today. They are direct current, abbreviated DC, and alternating current, abbreviated AC. In a direct current, the electrons flow in one direction.

Do electrons move rapidly through direct-current circuits?

Adminnnn! How do electrons in alternating current circuits carry energy?

Current is through each resistor is different because resistance of each resistor is different (suppose). but how is the voltage drop at each resistor same here? shouldn't the voltage drop at each resistor be different because each resistor offers different resistor?

How is the current is same at all places in series circuit when there are resistors?

Electrons actually move very slowly through direct current (DC) electric circuits.

The electrons is pushed in single direction.

The given circuit example is a simple circuit. I don't see any problem with the voltage drops here since the circuits are not connected and given as different circuits.White wrote:Current is through each resistor is different because resistance of each resistor is different (suppose). but how is the voltage drop at each resistor same here? shouldn't the voltage drop at each resistor be different because each resistor offers different resistor?

Why do electrons move very slowly through circuits with direct current?

As you can see, the circuit have only one resistor so we are looking for only one value of current.

This Forum is very helpful specially for those who under taking electronic.

The current is all the same in a series circuit because as you can see the circuit the resistor is align so expect that the same current is flowing in the every resistor in a circuit

You can try yung Kirchhoffs Law

The formula for Volts is Watts divided by Amps. To use the chart, cover up the V with your finger and use the remaining chart calculation of W divided by A. Using our sample panel data, 60 watts divided 5 Amps equals 12 Volts. The formula for Amps is Watts divided by Volts.
