    two things...

    1. We need more information. do you mean average current, rms current, etc?
    2. This is the third question you have asked about finding some value of current related to the shape of the waveforms. The method of finding RMS, average current, etc will be the same from waveform to waveform. For some waveforms yes there will be shortcuts that you easily finding on sites such as Wikipedia. The goal of this site is not to spoon feed you equations, but rather to help you think on your own.

    Integrate the current or use geometry.
