what is current ,and how is this different from voltage
current is the flow of electrons, while voltage is the one that pushes it.. let's take water as an example, the running water is the current, while the pressure that pushes the water is the voltage..
you can also read the entire discussions of this site's textbook and you will learn more..
Current is charge in motion.
voltage is potential difference it cycles at 60 hz.
conductance is the flow of electrons
Conductance is the measure of how easily electrons flow within an element. Current is the flow of electrons, which as you say in a previous post is charge in motion.
Geeeeeeeez bashing huh? thats ok have a good one dont worry about me anymore
I have "bashed" people worse for less!! Don't take it to heart
Well so sorry i said the flow of electrons its the ease of which electrons flow I think it was late at night when i posted that after a 3 class day at school
current is the flow of electrons across a conductor when we apply a voltage(that is we apply potential difference across a conductor)across it.
I still love the water explanation. easiest for most to follow. voltage as the pressure in the hose. current being how much water is coming out. resistance pinching the hose and slowing the flow (current).
