(Redirected from Electric current)Current is the amount of electrical charge flowing through an object, or through an electric circuit, at a given moment. While moving charge is normally carried by electrons, positive current is measured in the opposite direction from the flow of electrons, since electrons have a negative charge.
Different objects have different resistance. An object with high resistance, called an insulator, will have a lower current flowing through it. An object with low resistance, called a conductor, will have a higher current flowing through it.
