Current (denoted as I) is a measure of the amount of charge moving through an area at a given time. The SI unit for current is the amp, equal to one coulomb per second. Current is related to resistance (R) and voltage (V) by the formula


and to power (P) by


Current divided by cross-sectional area is called current density, and is represented by J.
