Current is electron motion.But voltage is force of the motion

Current is the flow of electrons due to the external force. The external force is voltage.

Current is the flow of electrons and Voltage is the force applied to move electron.

Current is the motion of electrons and Voltage is the driving force which drives this flow of electrons.

It is a simple cause and effect question. In simple terms Voltage is the cause and current is the effect.

voltage creates current.

when the terminals of circuit are open it makes voltage.But when these get connected,it becomes current

voltage is electric motive force, when we get a closed path i push the electrons ,causing electric currents

Voltage is generally electromotive force which simply create pressure between two level that push the electron to move through the circuit this moving of electron is simply called current its measuring unit is ampere and one ampere is equal to 628 million million electron in one sec

When a power is supplied to an electrical passive component through power source,a pressure is required to install that component.That pressure is termed as voltage and through which energy is losing and reaching to the required component is known as rate flow of electrical charges!!!

hi........
the main difference b/w current and voltage that the voltage is force which forced to flow the electron when the electron are starts to flow then this flow of electron is called as current.

In simple terms,Current is nothing but flow of charged particles which are electrons but where as voltage is the potential of that charged particles.

Current is the flow of electrons in an electrical circuit. Voltage is the potential difference between the 2 terminals of electric circuit for 1 unit charge.

#### SONI RANJAN MAHAPATRA

current is flow of electron in a body where as voltage is the pressure applied to move the electron displacement through the body.

Voltage is the electrical pressure applied to a conductor to push current through the conductor while current is the amounts of electrons flowing through a conductor. Current flow depends on the resistance of the conductor. So if the conductor has a high resistance it will need a large force (voltage ) to push current through it

current connected with series but voltage connected with parallel.....................

THE VOLTAGE IS POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO ENDS OF THE CONDUCTOR,
CURRENT IS FLOW OF ELCTRONS.

The current is like football, the kick is voltage.. the electrons flows through conductor by voltage.

The main difference between voltage and current is the flow of water in a tube is current that means quantity of water is electrons and the force of water is voltage

#### lalit

voltage is the driving force that causes the current to flow in the closed path of the circuit. so if there is no voltage , there would be no current in that part of the circuit across the element

• Oct 24th, 2014

Current is the electron motion through external force.              External force is applied voltage.
