Current Density

In electromagnetism, and related fields in solid state physics, condensed matter physics etc. current density is the electric current per unit area of cross section. It is defined as a vector whose magnitude is the electric current per cross-sectional area. In SI units, the electric current density is measured in amperes per square metre.
