Voltage Vs Current !

Question : What is Voltage & Current ? Explain in a very simple language to understand definition.
(It was a question posted in Electronics For You's official page at Facebook.)

Even though there were so many answers to this question, but the answer with maximum likes and posted by Tanya Sharma, (Management Coordinator at Electronics Society of India) was really impressive.
Answer : Just think about water system at your home. You've a water tank. Isn't it ? Water pressure depends on tank size. When you open the valve water starts to flow. You can control the water by controlling the valve.
Similarly in Electronics the tank is voltage, water is current and the valve is resistance.

It's what I call creativity in technology & thinking out of the box.
Cheers !
