Unformatted text preview: Perhaps the clearest way to think about this is to pretend as if movement of positive charge carriers constituted current ow. It is important to realize that the difference between conventional current ow and electron ow in no way effects any real-world behavior or computational results. In general, analyzing an electrical circuit yields results that are independent of the assumed direction of current ow. Conventional current ow is the standard that most all of the world follows. electron ow electron ow current ow current ow Conventional current ow is opposite to electron ow +-1.5V zap-o-matic...
