I am very much a beginner so I apologize for my ignorance. But this has been bothering me for a long time and I found little to no answers.
I know that the definition of Current is charge passing through a point per second measured in A.
My confusion is how the increase in charge passing through a point achieved when we increase the current.
My belief is by increasing the current we increase the speed of charge, thus allowing us to register charges passing through a point more frequently since they are moving in a circle. Would that be true?
I've done lots of googling but this is the only related thread that in a way confirms what i said: https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/183482/does-a-resistor-slow-down-the-flow-of-electrons-or-just-let-less-electrons-throu ( i apologize the link I provided the first time was wrong)
The answer does not have upvotes and I found no other proof so I am very not confident that this is true.
Could it be that increasing the current releases more particles from the terminal, thus increasing the quantity, instead of speed?
