Current Electricity

Charges in motion constitute an electric current. Such currents occur naturally in many situations. Lightning is one such phenomenon in which charges flow from the clouds to the earth through the atmosphere, sometimes with disastrous results.

The net flow of charge in a direction through a conductor is called electric current. The branch of physics which deals with the charge in motion is called current electricity.
