The rate of flow of charge across any cross-section of a conductor is
known as electric current.
It is a scalar quantity.
I=Q/t
1 Ampere=1 Coulomb/ 1 second
Electric Current
When 1 coulomb of charge flows through any cross-section
of a conductor in 1 second, the electric current flowing through
it is said to be 1 ampere.

Current is measured by an instrument called ammeter.

An ammeter should have very low resistance.
The electrostatic potential at any point is defined as the
work done in bringing a unit positive charge form infinity to
that point.

RESISTANCE
Conductance: The inverse of resistance is known as conductance of the
conductor. G=1/R ; S.I. unit of conductance is mho or (ohm)

R of a conductor depends on :
The nature of the material of the conductor;
length of the conductor;
area of cross section of the conductor;
temperature of the conductor.

RESISTIVITY
For metals and alloys of metals, the resistivity increases with
rise in temperature.
Hi! Can you tell me what will happen to the resistance of this wire whose
resistance is 446.5 ohm, if I stretch it by one-tenth of its original length.
I am giving you four options:

(a) 50 O (b) 54 O
(c) 12O (c) 20 O
LETS TRY THIS
New resistance=?
R=446.5 ohm.
As volume of the wire is constant. Thus

new length of wire become:

Let the new resistance be R

Electrical Energy
Electric energy is the potential
energy associated with the
conservative Coulomb forces
between charged particles
contained within a system.

Electric power
When an electric current is passed through a high resistance
wire , the resistance wire becomes very hot and produces
heat. This is called the heating effect of current.

H = I Rt Or H = P x t
Heating Effects Of Current
It is utilized in the electrical
heating appliances such as
electric iron, room heaters,
water heaters etc.

It is utilized in electrical
bulbs for producing light.

An electric fuse is an
important application of the
heating effect of current.
