How can the electric current in a circuit be kept continuous?

Susmita asked:

  1. What is Current?
  2. How can electric current in a circuit be kept continuous?

 

Ans:

The word current means flow.

Electric Current refers to charges in motion. The most common way of producing current is by applying a potential difference across the terminals of a conductor. Then the free electrons in the conductor drifts towards the positive terminal.

The current in the circuit can be kept continuous by providing a constant potential difference between two points of the circuit. This is usually done by connecting the ends of the circuit to the terminals of an electrochemical cell (which converts chemical energy to electrical energy) or a dynamo (which converts mechanical energy to electrical energy)
