The conventional current travels counterclockwise. Electron travel in the direction of increasing potential. Electric potential is greatest near the positive terminal. The electron will feel more electric potential at point b because it is close to the positive terminal.

## Which direction − clockwise or counterclockwise − does an electron travel through the wire and through the battery in Figure 1 )?

Which direction−clockwise or counterclockwise−does an electron travel through the wire and through the battery in (Figure 1)? The electrons travel counterclockwise through the wire and from the positive terminal to the negative terminal through the battery.

## What is the conventional direction of electric current?

The direction of an electric current is by convention the direction in which a positive charge would move. Thus, the current in the external circuit is directed away from the positive terminal and toward the negative terminal of the battery. Electrons would actually move through the wires in the opposite direction.

## Which way does current flow north or south?

The current flows in the clockwise direction at the south pole and in the anticlockwise direction at the north pole, in both coils, so the ‘S and N rule’ is not broken.]

## What way you can determine magnetic field and current flow direction?

We can find the magnetic field that is caused by moving charges using a second right-hand rule. The magnetic field made by a current in a straight wire curls around the wire in a ring. You can find it by pointing your right thumb in the direction of the current in the wire and curling your fingers.

## Do resistors make electrons flow faster?

Question: Do resistors slow down the speed of an electron? Short answer: No, they don’t. How can I say this? The amount of current going through a circuit is constant, as we can measure with an ammeter (amperemeter).
