In SI units, the amperage is measured in amps.Electricity BasicsTypes of electricity A hair dryer, an electric stove, a light bulb, a toaster-all these devices use electricity. Electricity is the flow of electrons through a conductor such as copper wire or aluminum. Electrons flow in one direction-from negative to positive. This flow is called electric current (or I). In a circuit, current flows from the negative terminal of the battery or power supply source to the positive terminal. The unit for measuring electric current is amperes (or A). We know that because electrons create magnetic fields around wires that can be detected by magnets placed nearby and because these magnetic fields have force, we can measure their strength using an ampere.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Add a Video to describe the problem better.
