True or false it is impossible for the electrons in a battery to travel form the positive to negative terminal?
Do electrons flow from the positive to the negative terminal of a wet cell?
Electrons have a negative charge. For that reason, electrons will always flow in the opposite direction of the current, which flows from positive to negative. Electrons will therefore move from a negative terminal to a positive terminal when we look at the load on a cell. Within the cell, the electrons will flow from the positive terminal to the negative terminal.

Do electrons come out of the negative or positive terminal?
Electrons are negatively-charged particles that flow out from the negative terminal and into the positive terminal of a battery. It was once assumed that moving particles had a positive charge, and so this conventional current flow set the original arrow direction, still shown on diodes and junction transistors.
What way does electricity flow in a battery?
Outside the battery: The path for conventional current goes from the positive terminal (+, usually a red wire) to the negative terminal (−, usually a black wire). A wire's electrons flow from the negative (−) terminal to the positive (+) terminal. Since the current forms a continuous a loop in the same direction, the direction inside the battery is "backwards". Inside the battery: Conventional current flows from the negative (−) terminal to the positive (+) terminal. Positive ions flow from the negative (−) terminal to the positive (+) terminal. Negative ions flow from the positive(+) terminal to the negative (−) terminal Conventional current assumes that all flowing charges are positive. It simplifies the situation because it hides the more complicated electrons, positive ions, and negative ions.

Do protons flow from the negative to the positive terminal of a cell?
Protons are not the carriers of electric current ... for example, to the cellphone from a battery, or to the lamp through an extension cord. Electrons are. Electrons are negative charges. The negative terminal of the battery is the side where there are too many of them, and the positive terminal is where they all want to go to. Electric current is always from the negative terminal of the power source to the positive one.

Why does a cell have a positive terminal and a negative terminal?
How you can indicate the current direction in the network?
If we go for the diagramatic representation then battery positive is represented by the long terminal and battery negative is represented by the short terminal then the direction of the current is given by an arrow from positive terminal to negative terminal (Therotically electrons flow from negative to positive but we represent current flow from positive to negative. This is the sign convention )

How does current flow along a conductor?
Asked in Science
The flow of free electrons from atom to atom in a conductor are called what?
1) A conductor contains atoms and many free electrons which are at random motion. 2)When a potential difference is applied between the two ends of a conductor the free electrons move from negative terminal to positive terminal. 3)This movement of free electrons from negative terminal to positive terminal constitutes an electric charge. 4)Note that the conventional current direction is assumed to be from positive terminal to negative terminal. 5)free electrons of conductor move in such a way that when atom vibrate, the electrons starting flowing through the conductor

How do you know positive and negative terminals?
Why do electrons flow from negative to the positive in a electric circuit using a D battery?
Electrons are negatively charged particles. The reason the negative side of your D battery is negative is because that's where the free electrons are. The positive terminal is starved or has a deficit of electrons. The negatively charged electrons naturally want to fill the 'holes', in atoms lacking an electron on the positive side. Thus electron flow is from negative to positive. Conventional current flow assumes that current flows out of the positive terminal, through the circuit and into the negative terminal of the source. This was the convention chosen during the discovery of electricity. They were wrong!

Why do electrons come from the negative terminal and not the positive?
There is a purely arbitrary convention that the charge on the electron is negative, and the charge on the proton is positive. All we really know is that the charges are opposite; they are not really negative and positive in any fundamental sense. So, a terminal from which negatively charged electrons come, would also be considered to be negative.
In a dry cell the carbon rod releases electrons and becomes the positive or negative terminal?
Asked in Electrical Engineering
Does the electric current move from a negative to positive?
Formally, yes. Electric current is the flow of electrons, so electrons would flow from a more negative terminal (the cathode, or negative) to a more positive terminal (the anode, or positive). In circuit analysis, however, it is convenient to consider that that current flows from positive to negative. This works, so long as you are consistent in you usage.
