Unformatted text preview: Perhaps the clearest way to think about this is to pretend as if movement of positive charge carriers constituted current ﬂow. It is important to realize that the difference between conventional current ﬂow and electron ﬂow 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 ﬂow. Conventional current ﬂow is the standard that most all of the world follows. electron ﬂow electron ﬂow current ﬂow current ﬂow Conventional current ﬂow is opposite to electron ﬂow +-1.5V zap-o-matic...
