What is Electricity?
Electricity is a form of energy. An electric current consists of a flow of electrons (negatively charged particles). Electrical energy depends upon two things,
• The current measured in ampere (A), which is the rate of flow of electrons from one point in a conductor to another.
• The electrical potential creates pushing force to move the electrons in a conductor. It is measured in volts (V)
