IEVref: 121-11-13 ID: Language: en Status: Standard Term: (electric) current Synonym1: (conduction) current [Preferred] Synonym2: Synonym3: Symbol: I Definition: scalar quantity equal to the flux of the electric current density J through a given directed surface S: $I=\underset{\text{S}}{\int }J\cdot {e}_{\text{n}}\text{d}A$ where endA is the vector surface element NOTE 1 – The electric current through a surface is equal to the limit of the quotient of the electric charge transferred through that surface during a time interval by the duration of this interval when this duration tends to zero. NOTE 2 – For charge carriers confined to a surface, the electric current is defined through a curve of this surface (see the note to term “lineic electric current”).
