# What is electric current? What are the types of electric current?

Friends, welcome to my website, today I will show you Electric current What is? And what are its types? What is its unit, I will tell you about it. So let’s start

### What is electric current?

flow of electrons in an electric circuit electric current it is said.

this one scalar is, its units ampere it happens. english alphabets ‘i’ is displayed by

to measure electric current ammeter is used.

to measure electric current ammeter always in the circuit hierarchy is added to.

The direction of flow of electric current and electron are always opposite to each other. Where electric current flows from positive charge to negative charge, electrons flow from negative charge to positive charge.

The value of current flow in any electric circuit always depends on the resistance of the load to be added to the circuit and the voltage to be supplied in the circuit.

The value of electric current is proportional to voltage. When the value of voltage is high in the circuit, then the value of current is also high. When the value of voltage in the circuit is small, then the value of current is also low.

### Types of electric current

It is of two types-

#### 1. AC Current

Such an electric current whose direction and value keeps on changing or changing is called AC Current it is said. of this electric current Frequency 50Hz it occurs.
Friends, the light coming from the headlight in our homes is only alternating current. this stream us alternator, oscillator etc. is obtained.

#### 2.DC Current

Such an electric current whose direction and value does not change or change is called DC Current it is said. of this electric current Frequency 0 (zero) Hz it occurs.
this stream us Mobile Battery, Inverter, Cell, DC Generator and Rectifier etc. is obtained.

### How do you measure electric current?

to electric current ammeter measure from.

### What are the types of electric current?

It is of two types-
1.alternating current
2.Direct current

### What is the frequency of alternating current?

his Frequency 50 Hz it occurs.

### What is the frequency of direct current?
