 Hello, friends, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we will discuss the Difference Between Charge & Current. The basic difference between charge and current is that charge is a physical feature of matter while current is the flow rate of charges. As the charge is a physical characteristic of matter so it bears a force when located in the electric field. There are 2 types of charges positive, negative neutral. Due movement of charges in certain direction current is generated.

In today’s post, we will have a detailed look at both charges and electric current with the details and compare them to find their differences. So let’s get started with Difference Between Charge & Current,

#### Difference Between Charge & Current

Charge

• A charge is a physical parameter of material that allows making interaction among each other.
• It bears force only in the electrical field and there is no effect magnetic field.
• Its measuring unit is the coulomb.
• The same type of charges has the force of repulsion and dislike has attractive force.
• Material has no charge called neutral like neutron is neutral.
• The charge has a conserved feature that means if some amount of charge is subtracted from negative then the net charge remains same.
• Charges exist at the particles of atoms like proton and electrons.
• The charge in the rest state has an electric field about it and in motion has a magnetic field.
• The combination of electrical and magnetic fields called electromagnetic force.
• The coulomb is derived from the physicist Charles Augustin.
• Its other unit is ampere-hour.

Current

• The flow rate of charges or electrons is known as current.
• I=V/R
• I=Q/t
• At current due to both electric and magnetic field force exerted. • It also called a combination of charges that are passing in the device.
• Chares in motion called charge carries that cause the current to flow.
• Normally charges are electrons that caused current.
• In the case of semiconductor material current flow due to holes and free electrons that means they have two charges carries.
• In solution, current flows due to positive and negative ions.
• Ampere is flow charges in one second.
• Ammeter used to measure the current galvanometer also measure current
• Its measuring unit is Ampere.
• the electric field is produced by the current that control the working of electrical devices like motor, transformer.
• Current is denoted with I
• Ohm law explain the current that says voltage applied to the body has protoptioalnl value of current about body
• The device through which current passes called conductor and theorugh which current not flow called insulator

That is a detailed post about the difference between charge and current. If you have any query ask in comments. Thanks for reading.
