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.

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

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

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
