Dear student,

Electric current is the rate of charge flow past a given point in an electric circuit, measured in Coulombs/second which is named Amperes. In most DC electric circuits, it can be assumed that the Resistance to current flow is a constant so that the current in the circuit is related to Voltage and resistance by Ohm's law.
