Effects of Electric Current

Definition of current: Current is defined as the flow of charge per unit time.

that is I = q/t

There is flow of energy due to current called electrical energy. This energy can be converted into another forms and whenever there is conversion of electrical energy into another form of energy occurs then this conversion or transformation is called effect of electic current.

The following are the major effects of electric current:

  • Heating effects of electric current
  • Magnetic effect of electric current
  • Chemical effect of electric current

Let us discuss these effects one by one. Today we will discuss the heating effect of current: Continue reading “Effects of Electric Current”
