Current

The flow of electrons or holes (a.k.a., charge, or current carriers). Usually measured in amperes (amp or A) or in fractions of an ampere (milli-amps / mA, or micro-amps / µA). Current can be induced by application of an electric field through a conductor or by changing the electric field across a capacitor (displacement current).
