In which direction current flows inside the cell?
Asked by apramanik | 8th Nov, 2019, 12:06: AM
Electrons move from negative terminal of the cell to positive so conventionally it is said that current flows from positive terminal to negative terminal of the cell.

- Electric current is the flow of electrons. So, it should flow from the negative to the positive terminal. But my teachers say that the conventional direction of the current flow is high (positive terminal) to low (negative terminal) potential. Which statement is true? If both are true, then why? And please explain to me the difference between Direct and Alternating current. Please help, my exams are coming.
