What is used to measure electric current?
An ammeter, either shunt or inductive. A shunt is an inline resistor of a small, known resistance. Knowing the resistance and the voltage one can calculate the amperage by Ohms law, I=V/R. An inductive, or clamp on ammeter measures the magnetic field and using more complex calculations displays the current, typically on a digital display.

The Ammeter XD
An ammeter is used to measure an electric current. Alternatively, you can use a multimeter , set to an appropriate current range.
The Electric current is measured in three terms namely . Current in Ampere . Resistance in ohm . Potential difference in Volt Ampere is the speed @ which the current p…asses through the conductor. ohm is the resistant in a current carrying conductor. Volt is the potential difference between the +ve and -ve terminal.
An ammeter is used to measure electric current.
Force is usually applied to voltage. Current in amperes has magnitude and direction driven by voltage force.
The ampere, often abbreviated to amp or A . It measures electrical current which is denoted in Ohm's Law as "I". The unit or instrument used to measure electric is …called " AMMETER " More detail The unit is named after the French physicist AndrÃ© Marie AmpÃ¨re . A current of 1A is equal to 1 coulomb of charge passing a point in 1 second. The ampere is the unit of current. It is approximately 6.24 Ã 10 18 electrons passing a given point each second.

Electrical current is measured using an ammeter.
ammeter, which is understood as an amp meter
Current is measured in AMPERES - represented by a capital letter A.
A multimeter. It also measures resistance.
Amperes (Amps) which is I in the equation I=V/R
ammeter ...the branch in which current is to be measure..ammmeter is connected in series in that branch..

Electrical current is measured in Amperes or more simply,Amps . The ampere (SI unit symbol:A; SI dimension symbol: I), often shortened to amp. is the SI unit of elec…tric current ] (quantity symbol: I, i)and is one of theseven SI base units . . It is named after AndrÃ©-MarieAmpÃ¨re (1775-1836), French mathematician and physicist,considered the father of electrodynamics . . In practical terms, the ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge passing a point inan electric circuit per unit time, with6.241Ã10 18 electrons (or one coulomb ) per second constituting oneampere.
