The free electrons inside the conductor move at random directiElectric currentons and thus there is not net charge transport. We now make a break in the conductorand insert a battery as shown in fig.b.Points A and B are now at potentials and , respectively.( theA BA BV VV V V- = voltage of the battery)The situation is not static any more but charges move inside the conductor so thatthere is a net charge flow in a particulardirection. This net flow of electric charge we define as "electric currrent"AB(26 - 2)i+ qconductorvri- qconductorvrConsider the conductor shown in the figureIt is connected to a battery (not shown) andthus charges move through the conductorConsider one of the cross sections through the conductor ( aa or bb or c� � �Current = rate at which charge flowc )The electric current is definedCurrent SI Unit: C/s known as the "Amperes s:" a dqitid=An electric current is represented by an arrow which has the same direction as the charge velocity. The sense of thecurrent arrow is defined as follows: If the current is due to tCurrent direction :1. he motion of chargesthe current arrow is to the charge velocity If the current is due to the motion of chargesthe current arrow is to the charge veloci tvparallel 2.antnegaiparallelposittive ivery vr(26 - 3)dqidt=i- qconductorvrAJr Current density is a vector that is defined as follows:Its magnitude The direction of is the same as that of the currentThe current through a condu iJAJ=Current densityr2SI unit for J : A/mctor of cross sectionalarea is given by the equation: if the current density is constant. If is not constant then: i JAi J dAJ A== ��rrri+ qconductorvrAJr1We note that even though the current density is a vectorthe electric current is not. This is illustrated in the figure to the left. An incoming current branches atpoint a into two currents, ,oii1 22 and . Current This equation expresses theconservation of charge at point a. Please note that we have not used vector additionoi i ii= + iJA=(26 - 4)When a current flows through a conductorthe electric field causes the charges to movewith a constant drift speed . This drift speedis superimposed on the random motion of the charges. dvDrift speedConsider the conductor of cross sectional area shown in the figure. We assumethat the current in the conductor consists of positive charges. The total charge within a length is given by: Aq L q nA=( ). This charge moves through area in a time .
