Current Electricity

Current electricity is generated and used as a source of energy in homes and industry.

Current electricity is a flow of charged particles, usually through a circuit*.
In all dry conductors*, the flow is of electrons* and therefore of negative charge*.

The electrons flow from negative to positive. They are attracted to the positive terminal and repelled from the negative terminal.
