Electric Current

The flow of electric charge is called electric current. Electric current always flows through a closed circuit. A path through which electric current flows is called electric circuit. When electric current flows through a conductor, the conductor’s temperature increases. This phenomenon is called heating effect of electric current. When current flows through a conductor, a magnetic field is created around the conductor. This phenomenon is called magnetic effect of electric current. These effects of electric current are exploited to make various electrical gadgets.
