# current and voltage difference

current and voltage difference. In the world of electricity you will find a term or a word that is often called. The word is electric current and voltage. Well in this post I will share about the difference between electric current and electric voltage and how to measure the current and voltage of electricity

If you will repair or make a series of electronics you should know first what is the meaning of current and voltage because if it is wrong then the circuit will be made will be damaged

The difference between electric current and voltage is as follows

## what are current and voltage difference

In this post I will discuss about the electric current and electric voltage

### electric voltage definition

Electrical voltage is the potential difference between the two poles. The size of the utility voltage is expressed in volts

Examples in everyday life you will often encounter 220V AC voltage

If in the world of automation you will find 12V DC voltage is the motorcycle or car battery voltage and so on

The tool for measuring the voltage is called a voltmeter

## electric current definition

While the meaning of electric current itself is the amount of electric charge flowing per unit time

The more electrical charge that flows the greater the electrical current generated

The size of the electric current is expressed in amperes. But because the ampere is a size that is too large usually large electric current is also expressed in the size of milli amperes (mA) and micro amperes (uA)

Tool to measure the magnitude of electric current is called ampere meter

physical form volt meter and ampere meter are as follows  In electrical circuit if the flow of electricity that is large enough to cause heat and even cause a fire

Meanwhile, the battery the greater the flow of electricity that will result in the battery run out quickly

In electrical circuits in homes to avoid excessive electricity is usually installed a tool called MCB or can also use a fuse
