Electric current is the rate of flow of electric charge through a conductor in an electric circuit. It is measured in Coulombs per second (C/s) or Amperes (the SI unit for electric current). A charge flows when an electromotive force is applied, given by potential difference (or voltage). The charge always flows from high electrical potential to low potential. Electric current can be simply called “current”. The electric charge is carried by mobile electrons in a conductor, or ions in an electrolyte. Electric current is measured by an ammeter.

Electric current is also produced naturally by various phenomena including lightning, electric eels, solar wind and the polar auroras. The nervous system in humans and animals also uses a form of electric current based on the exchange of ions.
