What unit is used to measure resistance

What unit is used to measure current

In a wire . . . . . ampere

In a river . . . . . mile per hour

More detail for the electrical answer

The ampere, often abbreviated to amp or A.

The unit is named after the French physicist André Marie Ampère.

<><><>

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 × 1018 electrons passing a given point each second. See the Related Link shown below for more detail.
