It is called current electricity. Whenever you apply a battery to a wire or conductor, the battery pushes the electrons through the conductor causing the electron to flow through the wire. This constitutes the current.


Electricity. This is the normal flow of electrons in a wire.


When electrons flow through a conductor such as a wire, it is called, "Electricity".


They both are constant..Water flows through a pipe but electrons flow through a wire.


Not around... moving THROUGH a magnetic field forces electrons to flow through a wire.


Electricity flow through a wire as a result of the movement of electrons and hols.


Such flow of electrons is known as electric current or electricity.



... a potential difference between the ends of the wire.


the electrons in the wire begin to flow


There is a complete circuit.


When electrons always flow in the same direction in the wire it is known a DC (direct current).


Current that flows in a wire is consists of electrons. The electrons bear negative charges.


See voltage means potential difference. Electrons move from higher potential to lower potential always. In wire same thing happens. So electrons flow because there is potential difference and flow of electrons causes current to flow. current is nothing but flow of electrons. reply if u r satisfied @ rahul.khaladkar@rediffmail.com



When some metals form, their electrons are not stolen nor shared, but pooled. The electrons freely float between the atoms. This is called a metallic bond, or pooling. The electrons flow freely between the atoms, and when two wires are put on either side of the metal, it channels the electrons to flow through to the other wire.



Electricity can flow in the conductor becourse the conductor is made up by electrons. When the wire is connected to the source, these electrons do vibrate and caurse collision among themself. This collision caurse electricity to flow throw the conductor/wire.


Wire is wrapped around a core. This is rotated inside a magnetic field so it alternates the direction of the flow of electrons. This causes the electric current.


Electrons flow in a metal because they are not tightly bound to the atoms - they are relatively free to move. However, a current will only flow if a voltage is apply.


The flow of electrons through anything is called an electrical current.


The electrons in a conducting wire are loose and can move freely. When the circuit is closed, a potential difference is set up across the terminals. The battery maintains this potential difference. Then the electrons in the wire move towards the positive terminal of the battery. This flow of electrons constitute the electric current.


ELECT. CURRENT IS BASICALLY THE FLOW OF ELECTRONS FROM ONE POINT TO ANOTHER POINT IN THE CIRCUIT. IN, AC IT IS "PUSHED" THROUGH THE WIRE BY THE MAGNETIZED COIL. ELECTRONS ARE AFFECTED BY MAGNETISM. IN DC, ON PART OF THE BATTERY HAS LESS ELECTRONS THAN THE OTHER. WHEN THESE TWO ARE CONNECTED, THE ELECTRONS FLOWS TO THE HUNGRIER ATOMS. THESE PRODUCES CURRENT OR ELECTRICITY IN THE WIRE.


Yes, heat energy is produced by the electrons;however small it may be,actually if we consider a resistance then it is an hindered to the flow of electrons,as a result of which the electrons collide with the particles of wire resulting in loss of energy in the form of heat.the equation of heat generated is: H=(I^2 *R*t) where- H=heat produced in joules R=resistance of the material in ohm t=time of current flow in seconds


Charge flowing through a conductor creates a current, similar to that of a wire, and that current creates the magnetic field.
