Question 1 of 5

Current is the rate of flow of electrons per unit time and is measured in amperes (A). A coulomb (C) is the quantity of electricity conveyed in one second by a current of one ampere.

Why does current in an electric circuit create heat?

current is naturally hot

voltage is naturally hot

the wire in the circuit burns when current passes through

heat is created when the current overcomes resistance in the wire
