So I need to draw a diagram that shows current densities, using the standard symbols for current going in to page and current out of page as seen below. What is the best way to implement this?

  • If you draw your sketch with some of LaTeX packets, the simple way is draw this symbols by this package to. Show to us, what you try so far, than we will able to help you. Welcome to TeX. SE – Zarko Dec 1 '16 at 18:36

For current symbols you can use math symbols \otimes and \odot :). For more you should provide Minimal Working Example. Knowing it, I (or some one other) can suggest how to draw this symbols.

Edit: In case of use ciruitikz package, you can include theses symbols in node. For example

      label={[align=left]right:CURRENT\\ FLOW OUT}] at (<coordinete>) {$\otimes$};
      label={[align=left]right:CURRENT\\ FLOW IN}] at (<coordinete>) {$\odot$};

or alternatively as suggested Alex:

\node[label={[align=left]right:CURRENT\\ FLOW OUT}] at (<coordinete>) {$\bigotimes$};
\node[label={[align=left]right:CURRENT\\ FLOW IN}] at (<coordinete>) {$\bigodot$};
  • You should mentioned in question, that you use circuitikz package! See edit of my answer. – Zarko Dec 1 '16 at 20:39
  • Beat me to it... But, I believe \bigodot and \bigotimes work better for this case. – Alex Dec 31 '16 at 21:09
