# NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Physics Chapter 3 Current Electricity

NCERT solutions for class 12 Physics chapter 3 Current Electricity: Current is the flow of electric charge through a given area. And we cannot see this current but we can experience it. An example is an electric shock. If we want to utilize the charge flow we must have a closed path. NCERT class 12 Physics solutions for chapter 3 Current Electricity explains you about the factors affecting the current flow, how current is flowing in a conductor, basics laws related to current electricity and circuit analysis and a few measuring devices. In this page, we also provide you with NCERT solutions for class 12 Physics chapter 3 Current Electricity in detail.

Do you know how current is produced? And how it reaches our home? There are many methods of production of current. It may be using fuel, steam, water, nuclear power etc. These methods are not there in NCERT solutions for class 12 Physics chapter 3 Current Electricity. If you are interested you can search for these. Here we present the solution of the NCERT 12 chapter 3 current electricity. The exercises in this chapter will help you to boost your knowledge.

NCERT solutions for class 12 Physics chapter 3 Current Electricity introduces two basic laws which are Ohm’s law and Kirchoff's law. Using these laws you can solve most of the problems related to the chapter.

• A simple form of Ohm’s law is

V=IR, where V is the voltage applied across the conductor, I is the current through the conductor. This law is valid under a constant condition of temperature and pressure. And all the materials do not obey Ohm’s law. Usually, conductors obey Ohm’s law.

The second law related to NCERT solutions for class 12 Physics chapter 3 Current Electricity is Kirchoff’s law. There are two laws

1. Kirchoff’s current law or junction law: the law states that current entering a junction = current leaving the junction
2. Kirchoff’s voltage law: in a closed circuit algebraic sum of voltages =0
