An explanation of conventional current vs Electron Flow. Two ways of representing current flow in a circuit.
Electron Flow (Electrons flowing from negative to positive) is the True correct way from a physics stand-point. However, Since the early days of discovery, people thought current flowed in the opposite direction (From Positive to Negative). Because of this, Symbols, and Circuit Diagrams have always been drawn to suit Conventional current flow.
This is why all my future videos will use conventional current flow, because the symbols for components where polarity matters can become confusing if conventional current flow is not used.
All videos I have done up to this point are still 100% correct. The only change is the direction of current to ensure symbols properly match the representation.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
