Current ElectricityCurrent Electricity is electricity in which the charged particles move.
In Static Electricity the electricity produced does not move.
Current ElectricityConduction is the passage of electric current through material by direct collision of particles.
In radios, electric currents travel through the wires connected to the batteries.
Current ElectricityEnergy from another source is needed to produce energy in the form of an electric current.
Electrons do not remain stationary after a charge has been produced.
Detecting CurrentA current detector determines if there is a current in a wire.
The current detector allows you to compare strengths of different electric circuits.
Measuring CurrentA galvanometer measures weak electric currents
Measuring CurrentAn ammeter is used to measure stronger currents
Measuring CurrentThe unit we use to measure current is called ampere.
The SI symbol is A
Measuring CurrentThe electric current being measured consists of moving electrons.
The greater the number of electrons that move past a point in 1 second, the greater the current.
