# State the relation between electric current; number of electrons moving in a circuit and time in seconds. - Physics

Short Note

State the relation between electric current; the number of electrons moving in a circuit and time in seconds.

#### Solution

If Q is the charge (in coulombs) flowing through a conductor in time t (in seconds) such that current I flows through the conductor then
Rate of flow of charge = "Q"/"t"
We know the rate of flow of charge = I = Electric current.
⇒ I = "Q"/"t"

Concept: Types of Circuits: Simple Circuit
