Why electons move in direction opposite to electric field applied across a conductor

Asked by  | 10th Jun, 2009, 09:53: AM

Expert Answer:

Since the force on a charge in electric field = qE

As the electron has negative charge, so the force on electron is always opposite to the direction of electric field. Under the influence of this force the electron moves in the direction opposite to electric field.
