Conventional Current Flow assumes that current is
Statement: The conventional current flow assumes that current is:
- Flow of positive charges from -ve terminal to +ve
- Flow of positive charges from +ve terminal to -ve
- Flow of negative charges from +ve terminal to -ve
- Flow of negative charges from -ve terminal to +ve
Correct answer: 2. Flow of positive charges from +ve terminal to -ve
Explanation: In early days of Electrical Engineering research it was thought that current is the flow of positive charges moving from the positive terminal of the battery towards the negative terminal.
After discovery of atomic nature, the electron flow of current was learned. But still these days the conventional current flow theory is being used in books.
