# Some facts

- Electric current is
**ordered directional movement of electric charges**. - Most often when we talk about electric current we mean
**electron motion**, but it can also be other particles having a charge (both positive and negative) e.g. ions or protons. - The
**electric current**is defined as the**ratio**of**electric charge**that moved through the point of the conductor**to the amount of time**passed. - Simply speaking, the current tells us
**how fast**(or with what intensity) electric charges**are moving**(flowing). Mathematically, we can write it in the following form:

$I_{\text{avg.}} = \frac{\Delta q}{\Delta t}$where:

**$I_{\text{avg.}}$**- average current during the measurement,

**$\Delta q$**- the electric charge moved during the measurement,

**$\Delta t$**- time of measurement

- In the case when the number of transferred charge can
**change in time**, it is necessary to introduce the concept of**instantaneous intensity**defined as**charge derivative over time**(→ see derivative of the function):

$I_{inst.} = \frac{dq}{dt}$ - The basic
**unit of current**is**one ampere**(1A). The current of one ampere is equivalent of one coulomb moved during one second:

$1A = \frac{1C}{1s}$ - The current flowing through the conductor
**depends on the applied voltage**(potential difference beetwen the ends of the conductor) and also on**resistance of the conductor**. In the case of**linear elements**, the current can be calculated using Ohm's law. - The device used to measure the electric current is
**ammeter**.

# How to convert

**Enter the number to field "value"**- enter the NUMBER only, no other words, symbols or unit names. You can use dot (**.**) or comma (**,**) to enter fractions.

Examples:- 1000000
- 123,23
- 999.99999

**Find and select your starting unit in field "unit"**. Some unit calculators have huge number of different units to select from - it's just how complicated our world is...**And... you got the result**in the table below. You'll find several results for many different units - we show you all results we know at once. Just find the one you're looking for.
