Textbook Problem

While discussing current flow: Technician A says that current results from electrons being attracted to protons. Technician B says that for practical purposes, it is best to remember that current flows from a point of higher potential to a point of lower potential. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • Expert Solution
    To determine

    The technician with correct argument.

    Explanation of Solution

    Given information:

    Technician A says current results from electrons being attracted to protons.

    Technicians B say that it is best to remember that current flows from a point of higher potential difference to lower potential difference for practical purposes.

    In any electrical system, electricity is produced when current is flowing into the circuit. The current is produced due to the flow of electrons into the circuit. As the electrons are negatively charged they are attracted towards the protons. This attraction is termed as electrical pressure...
