Correct Answer - Option 4 : 2.4 A

Concept:

Current is a flow of electrical charge carriers, usually electrons or electron-deficient atoms.

Mathematically Current is defined as rate of change of charge

Current(I) = $\frac{dq}{dt}=\frac{Δ q }{Δ t}$

Where

dq = Δq = change in flow of charge

dt = Δt = change in time

Application:

Given:

Δq = 12 C, Δt = 5-0 = 5 sec

I = $\frac{dq}{dt}=\frac{Δ q }{Δ t}$

I = $\frac{{12}}{{5}}$

= 2.4 A

1. Voltage V = $\frac{{dW}}{{dq}}$

2. Power P = V × I

= $\frac{{dW}}{{dq}}\times \frac{dq}{dt}$

$\frac{{dW}}{{dt}}$

The direction of current will be in the direction of positive charges flowing in a conductor always.
