Types of Electric Current

Electrical current is the flow of charged particles. It is similar to flow of water molecules in a river. Electric current is of two types:

  1. Direct Current (DC)
  2. Alternative Current (AC)

Direct Current: (DC):

In this type of electric current, direction is always same. The electric current generated from a cell or battery is DC. Due to the same direction …

What is Electric Current?

Electric current is the flow of electric charge (charged particles) through a conductor with respect to time. The process is similar to flowing of a river in one direction. Electric current is measured by the number of “free electrons” passing a particular point in a circuit per second. So we can conclude and define electric current …
