What is the relationship between power and current?

current  flows  due  to  potential  diffrences,  hence  when  flowing  in  resistive  areas  it  causes  voltage  drop  thus  power  is  dissipated.

P = I2R

Where P = power

I = Current

R = Resistance

This the relationship between current and power.
