Answer :

Electric potential is a scalar physical quantity.

Define 1 volt electric potential.
 

Hide | Show

Answer :

Electric potential is said to be 1 volt if 1 Joule of work is done in moving 1 coulomb charge from infinity to a point in the electric field.

Define electric current. State and define its SI unit. (CBSE 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015)

Hide | Show

Answer :

Electric current is defined as the amount of charge flowing through a cross-section of a conductor in unit time.
 
SI unit of electric current is ampere (A).
Electric current through a conductor is said to be 1 ampere if one coulomb charge flows through a cross-section of the conductor in one second.
