Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah i see, thank you, can i jst get clarification about 'definite direction', do you mean for example, when a charge moves through a wire it is moving in a definite direction as it is moving towards a fixed point of positive charge on the other side? if so, can you give an example where 'charge' is transferred or 'moved' but it is not considered current?? appreciate the help mate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0due to thermal energy the electrons also moves but this movement is random...so it doesn't produce current
