. In which direction does current flow in an electric

 circuit ? Also, write the SI unit of electric current .


Best Answer


Since electric current is a uniform flow of electrons, its direction is opposite to the flow of electrons.

Therefore the direction of electric current in an electric circuit is from the positive terminal to the negative terminal of the battery. 

Its SI unit is ampere(A).

Final answer:-

Electric current always flows from negative terminal to positive terminal ( lower potential to higher potential ) in an electric circuit.

S.I. unit of Electric current is Ampere (A).
