Along the length of an electrically conductive Wire, this is called Electrical Current.
From another point of view, this results in the formation of a chemical bond.
While there are wires that are made from metals that are non-conducive, there is no example of atomic bonding that doesn't apply to the movement/sharing of electrons.
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
Metal crystals forms when metal atoms bond by sharing electrons among huge number of atoms and on macroscopic distances. These electrons behave in a first approximation as if they were free to move within the macroscopic volume of the crystal, while being contained by the crystal surface.
If an external potential is applied free electron moves jumping from one atom to the other up to assume a distribution into the metal that nullify the potential inside the metal. In general this means that the metal surface nearby the negative external electrode is positively charged (thus has more positive ions than electrons) while the surface near the positive external electrode is negatively charged (that is is electron reach.
If nothing else is done, the electron flux is only a short transitory phenomenon that end when the potential inside the metal is nullified.
However, if electrons are removed from the surface, for example via a conducting wire, the electron motions becomes stationary since the potential is never nullified.
In this case it is no more than the common electrical current.
Such flow of electrons is known as electric current or electricity.
current flow or amperage
No Nitrogen is a non-metal an is therefore a poor conductor of electricity because there is no where for the electrons to flow and there are no free electrons
Are free to move and flow
The electrons are able to flow easily.
Metals have between 1 and 3 valence electrons, and they therefore find it easier to give up electrons, to form a complete outer shell, than to acquire more electrons, since they would need between 7 and 5 additional electrons to form a complete outer shell of 8. When you have a collection of atoms which all are predisposed to give up electrons, the result is called a metallic bond, which consists of a cloud of shared electrons. Because these electrons are not bound to any specific atom, they move easily and conduct electricity well.
When electrons flow through a conductor such as a wire, it is called, "Electricity".
Anode The name for a positive charge conductor through which electrons flow into a device is called the life conductor.
Its called "current"
The terminology for a steady flow of electrons through a conductor is called the current of the circuit.
The flow of electrons from atom to atom is an electrical current.
No, a conductor does not have "positive electrons". Positive electrons are positrons, particles of anti-matter. A conductor, because if it's atomic structure, allows electrons to flow more freely from one atom to the other, thus creating electricity.
An electric current. <<>> The term used for the flow of electrons through a conductor is amperage.
