Current and the "I"
What does the abbrivation for current (I) stand for?
The symbol is current, the unit is ampere. Which is the rate of electrical
charge per unit time,
hence Coulomb/second. One electron has a charge of 1.6x 10-19 coulombs. The
number of electrons flowing per second is the inverse of the electron
