Document Summary

Electricity is related to charges, and both electron and protons carries a charge. They both have the same amount of charge for each particle, but they are opposite in sign. Electron carries negative charges, while protons carries positive charges. The protons are located at the centre of the atoms, and concentrated in a small area called nucleus. The protons are basically trapped inside the nucleus and cannot escape. The electrons are located outside the nucleus and move around orbits, as a result, since protons are trapped electrons are the particles that generate electricity. With electricity, current is a measure of the amount of charge transferred over a period of time. Current is a flow of electrons, or individual negative charges. When charge flows, it carries energy that can be used to do work. Scientists measure current with units called amperes. www. notesolution. com. One of the results of current is the heating of the conductor.
