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

V=IR

and to power (P) by

P=IV

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