# What is the relationship between power and current?

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.
