Answer to Question #5932 in Electric Circuits for PANKAJ

Question #5932
In electric current does positive charge flow or not ??? i know that electrons flow from -ve terminal to +ve terminal but i don't know that whether during electric current +ve charge flow or not .

Expert's answer
In metallic solids, electricity flows by means of electrons, from lower to higher electrical potential. To provide a definition of current that is independent of the type of charge carriers flowing, conventional current is defined to flow in the same direction as positive charges. So in metals where the charge carriers (electrons) are negative, conventional current flows in the opposite direction as the electrons. In conductors where the charge carriers are positive, conventional current flows in the same direction as the charge carriers.
