## Voltage vs Current-Difference between Voltage and Current

This page on **Voltage vs Current** describes basic
**difference between Voltage and Current** terms.

Following table mentions comparison between voltage and current with respect to resistance.

Voltage |
Current |
---|---|

Potential difference between two points in the circuit causes current to flow from higher to lower potential. This potential difference is referred as voltage. | Flow of electrons is referred as current. This flow of current is result of electromotive force such as produced using battery. |

It is measured by Voltmeter | It is measured by Ammeter, Ammeter Vs Voltmeter |

1 Volt = 1 Joule/Coulomb | It is measured in Ampere, mA, µA; 1 Ampere = 1 Coulomb/Sec. |

It creates electrostatic field. | It creates magnetic field. |

Voltage across components connected in parallel are of equal magnitude. | Current flowing through components connected in series are of equal magnitude. |

V = I * R, Where R is the resistance | I = V/R |

Both Current and VOltage is related as follows:

V/I = R ,

Where in ,

R is the resistance.

Current through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage across it if temperature and
other physical conditions do not change.
