Electrical resistance, measured in Ohms
Electronic charges will flow when a potential difference between the two locations, and an adequate path between them exists (with a low enough dielectric constant to allow th…e flow of charge - such as a wire). Electrons will move from here to there because there are "extra" electrons here, and there's some "missing" electrons there. Electrons have a specific charge. If you have "extra" electrons at one location relative to "missing" electrons at another location, you will have a negative voltage here, and a positive voltage (relative to here) there. This is called a potential difference (or voltage difference).
The flow of electric charges is current.
when a negative and a positive charges attract. or when there is a closed circuit.
When we bring a positively charged body towards a negatively charged body the negatively charged particles in the negatively charged body move towards the positively charged p…articles in the other body i.e an electric charge moves when we bring two bodies of differently charged bodies or the same charges(they repel each other in this case)
A conductor allows the flow of current, usually in a complete circuit. [An exception is a thermo-couple, where heating the junction of a pair of different metals causes electr…ons to flow away from the junction. ]
True.. Materials, such as copper or aluminum, that offer low resistance to the flow of electric charge are called conductors.
Electrical charge is a basic property of some particles. According to Coulomb's Law there is a force between charges. This force is associated with potential energy contained …in an electric field. This electrical potential is called voltage. When voltage is present, electrically charged particles move (unless prevented from doing so) due to the forces they "feel." The flow of charge is known as electrical current.
The term electricity is a general one, and it can be applied to any moving charges. But in the world of today, we generally think of electricity as the movement of electrons, …those little particles that carry the negative electrostatic force. We usually think of electricity as a flow or movement of electrons, or of negative charges. The term "electron flow" is sometimes used to talk about the movement of charges in an electronic circuit.
The flow of electric charge is called electric current.
