# Electric Current Unit Converter

Last updated: Saturday, April 29, 2023

Electric current refers to the flow of electric charge in a circuit, typically measured in units of amperes (A). Electric current can flow through conductive materials, such as wires, and is essential for powering many electrical devices we use every day.

Here are some examples of electric current in real-life situations:

Electrical circuits: Electric current flows through wires in electrical circuits, allowing the energy to be transferred from a power source to the device being powered. For example, the electrical current flowing through a computer's wires powers the device's processor, display, and other components.

Batteries: Batteries produce electric current by converting chemical energy into electrical energy. This is what allows portable electronic devices to function without being connected to a power source.

Household electrical systems: Electric current is used to power many household appliances and systems, such as lighting, heating, and cooling. These systems are all connected to an electrical circuit that allows the flow of current to power the devices.

The SI unit of Electric Current is ampere [ A ]
