Many sensors are powered using electricity.


-       Electronic sensors are designed to sense things we can’t sense.

-       Examples: Microphones sense sound waves, thermistors sense temperature.


Current is the rate of flow of charge.


Example: The current in a wire is like water flowing in a pipe. The amount of water that flows depends on the flow rate and the time.


Charge in coulombs (Q) = Current (I) x time
