**Electricity **is the flow of charge in a conductor from anode to cathode. Electricity has varied applications It acts as a tool to provide power to electrical devices. We can say the flow of charge builds up the current which we call as Electricity. To understand how the Electricity is generated, we need to understand the various basic parameters related to it like the voltage, current, resistance, conductivity and relation among them.

Some of the commonly used Electricity formulae are listed below.

Quantity |

Unit |

Current I | I = Q / t
Q = Charge t = time taken |
Amperes (A) |

Voltage V | V = E / Q
or V = W / Q E = Energy, W = Work done |
Volts (V) |

Resistance R | R = ρl / A
ρ = Resistivity, l = length, A = Area |
Ohm (Ω) |

Resistance R | R = V / I | ohm (Ω) |

Power P | P = VI | Watts (W) |

Conductivity σ | sigma = 1 / ρ | Siemens per meter (S/m) |

**Electricity Formulas** are applied in calculating the unknown electrical parameters from the known in electric circuits.

## Solved Examples

**Example 1**

** **Determine the current flowing through the electric heater have p.d of 220 V and resistance is 70 Ω.

**Solution:**

Given:

Resistance R = 70 Ω

Voltage V = 220 V

The current formula is given by

I = V / R

= 220 / 70

I = 3.1428 A

**Example 2**

An electrical lamp lights for 4 hours and draws a current of 0.5 A. Calculate the amount of charge flowing through the lamp.

**Solution:**

Current I = 0.5 A

Time taken t = 4 hours

t= 4 × 3600 = 14400 s,

Charge Q = I × t

= 0.5 ×14400

Q= 7200 C

Very nicely you are helpful for me coz i understand everything that i know

yes even me

I’m a student of class 10 and I was full of doubt about the formulas and I am so happy To understand it by you ,thank you byjus

Thanks for formulas

Very nicely and helpful

very helpful formulae
