## What is electric current?

Electric current is the flow of electric charge through a conductor. It's measured in amperes (A) and represents the charge flow rate past a given point in a circuit per unit time.

## Electric current is fundamental in the fields of:

• Electrical Engineering- designing and analyzing electrical circuits, devices, and systems.
• Physics- understanding electromagnetism is crucial in many physical phenomena.
• Electronics- operation of electronic devices, such as computers, smartphones, and televisions.

## Electric current units

• International System of Units (SI)

The standard unit of electric current in the SI system is ampere (A). One ampere is defined as the flow of one coulomb of charge per second.
Kiloampere (kA), Megaampere (MA), Gigaampere (GA), Teraampere (TA): These are multiples of the ampere used for large current values.
Milliampere (mA), Microampere (µA), Nanoampere (nA), and Picoampere (pA)- the subunits of the ampere for small current values.

• CGS (Centimeter-Gram-Second) Electromagnetic Unit System

Abampere (abA).1 abA = 10 A.

• CGS Electrostatic Unit System

Statampere (statA). One statampere is equivalent to approximately 3.33564 x 10^-10 amperes.

• Other Units

Biot (Bi): A unit of electric current used in magnetostatics. 1 Bi = 10 A.
Coulomb/second: Represents a flow of electric charge of one coulomb per second.
Franklin/second: Represents a flow of electric charge of one franklin per second.
Gilbert (Gi): A unit of electric current used in magnetism, approximately equal to 0.795775 amperes.
Siemens/Volt (S/V): Represents a current in siemens per volt, a measure of electrical conductance.
