# Symbol of measuring unit for current using electrical terms?

The Electric current is measured in three terms namely .
Current in Ampere .
Resistance in ohm .
Potential difference in Volt Ampere is the speed @ which the current p…asses through the conductor. ohm is the resistant in a current carrying conductor. Volt is the potential difference between the +ve and -ve terminal.

# What is used to measure electric current?

An ammeter, either shunt or inductive. A shunt is an inline resistor of a small, known resistance. Knowing the resistance and the voltage one can calculate the amperage by Ohm…s law, I=V/R. An inductive, or clamp on ammeter measures the magnetic field and using more complex calculations displays the current, typically on a digital display.

# Name the instrument used to measure electric current?

An ammeter is used to measure electric current.

# What unit is used to measure the force of an electric current?

Force is usually applied to voltage. Current in amperes has magnitude and direction driven by voltage force.

# What is the name of the unit used to measure an electric current?

The ampere, often abbreviated to amp or A . It measures electrical current which is denoted in Ohm's Law as "I". The unit or instrument used to measure electric is …called " AMMETER " More detail The unit is named after the French physicist AndrÃ© Marie AmpÃ¨re . A current of 1A is equal to 1 coulomb of charge passing a point in 1 second. The ampere is the unit of current. It is approximately 6.24 Ã 10 18 electrons passing a given point each second.

# What is the unit of measure used for calculating electric current?

Electrical current is measured in Amperes or more simply,Amps .
The ampere (SI unit symbol:A; SI dimension symbol: I), often shortened to amp. is the SI unit of elec…tric current ] (quantity symbol: I, i)and is one of theseven SI base units . .
It is named after AndrÃ©-MarieAmpÃ¨re (1775-1836), French mathematician and physicist,considered the father of electrodynamics . .
In practical terms, the ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge passing a point inan electric circuit per unit time, with6.241Ã10 18 electrons (or one coulomb ) per second constituting oneampere.
