'''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 [[Electrical resistance|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.
