Electric current is the flow of electricity from one point in a circuit to anoother. The current is a measure of the flow or quantity of electrons that pass a given point in one second. Most people use the "Ampere" as their unit of electric current flow. When one ampere of current is flowing in a wire, 6,280,000,000,000,000,000 electrons per second are flowing. By the way, this number of electrons is also given a name. It's called a "coulomb". The coulomb is a quantity of charge, the ampere is a measure of flow. You have one ampere when one coulomb of electrons flow per second. About 1 ampere flows through a 100 watt lamp when plugged into a 110 volt source.
