Dear Abhijit,

Electric current means, depending on the context, a flow of electric charge (a phenomenon) or the rate of flow of electric charge (a quantity). This flowing electric charge is typically carried by moving electrons, in a conductor such as wire; in an electrolyte, it is instead carried by ions, and, in a plasma, by both.

Current is flow of electric charge or we can say it is the amount of electric charge flowing past a specified circuit point per unit time.

CURRENT IS BEST DEFINED AS "THE NET FLOW OF CHARGE/CHARGES THROUGH A GIVEN CROSS SECTIONAL AREA IN A UNIT TIME"

MATHEMATICALLY -> CURRENT(I) = CHARGE FLOWN/TOTAL TIME

HOPE THAT HELPS

the flow of charges per unit time is called current. the flow of electrons(negatively charged particles),is called electric current.
