## Electric Current (1)

What is Electric Current?

1 of 14

## Electric Current (1)

An Electric is a flow of charge. In a metal this is due to the flow of electrons. In an electrolyte, the flow of +ve & -ve ions produces the current.

2 of 14

## Electric Current (2)

The direction of convectional current is from +ve to -Ve; the direction of electron flow is from -ve to +ve.

## Electric Current (6)

State Kirchhoff's First Law.

11 of 14

## Electric Current (6)

Kirchhoff's 1st law states that the sum of the currents entering any point in a circuit is equal to the sum of the currents leaving the same point.
