Conventional Current Flow vs. Electron Flow – Which is Right?
The debate rages on. Some say conventional current flow is correct. Others insist that electron current flow is right.
Let’s bust this thing wide open.
I’ll get back to the basics, take a look at both, see how each works, and squash this debate once and for all.
If you’re new to electronics you may not have heard this argument (yet). If you’re a veteran, then there’s no doubt you’ve heard from both sides of the camp.
We’ll start by taking a look at what current flow really is and then treat each one separately before we talk about which one is indeed correct.
