Electric Current Flow
The flow of electrical current through a wire is similar in concept to the flow of
water though a pipe…
• A greater force will make a larger current flow
• If a larger wire is used, there is less resistance & more current will flow
• The equation that describes current flow in an electrical circuit is called
Ohm’s Law
• If voltage (force) gets larger, current gets larger
• If Resistance gets larger, current gets smaller
• Current (amps) =
• I = V/R
Voltage (volts) / Resistance
