Explain drift current, Chemical Engineering

Drift current is the electric current, or movement of charge carriers, which is because of the applied electric field, often stated as the electromotive force over a given distance. It is distinguished from thermally-induced Diffusion current, which results from the random Brownian motion of charge carriers independent of electrical stimulus.
