## What is the measure of the movement of the electric charge?

Electric current is the movement of charged particles per unit time. Electric charge is measured in Coulombs, while electric current is measured in amperes.

## What is the electric force of a moving charge?

The magnitude of the electric force on a moving charge in an electric field is equal to the product of the electric field and the charge of the particle. This force depends on the type of charge (positive or negative) and the amount of the charge on the particle.

## What is the measure of electrical force?

The electrical force, like other forces, is generally measured in Newton units.

## What is the measure of work needed to move an electrical charge?

The work done moving a charge is given by the distance moved along the direction of the electric field multiplied by the charge and the field strength. In equation form it is W=q∗E∗L where L in this case is the distance along the E-field direction, or the component of the motion that is along the E-field direction.

## What is the SI unit of electric force?

The SI unit of electric force is Newton (N).

## What is the name for an electric force?

physics. Also known as: Coulomb interaction, electric force, electrostatic force.

## What is the SI unit of potential difference?

In the International System of Units (SI), potential difference is expressed in units of joules per coulomb or Volts.

## What is a measure of how much work is needed to move a charge from one point to another?

Electric potential difference, also known as voltage, is the external work needed to bring a charge from one location to another location in an electric field.

## Why is current denoted by I?

The conventional symbol for current is I, which originates from the French phrase intensité du courant, (current intensity).

## What is the electric force per electric charge unit?

The force per unit charge (E = F/q) is called the electric field. So option 1 is correct. The electric charge flowing per unit time is called current. The electric field per unit area is called electric flux.

## What is the electrical force that moves electrons?

This force is called electromotive force, EMF, or voltage (V). Sometimes it is convenient to think of EMF as electrical pressure. In other words, it is the force that makes electrons move in a certain direction within a conductor.
