My question is regarding V

for pos flow of charge

V

and

V

so V

This means that the current flowing from point d to point b gained potential energy. However the flow of charge from d to b are electrons and electrons lose potential energy as they move from lower to higher potentials. So when I look at it in that point of view

V

Can someone clarify to me why I am wrong.

_{db}.for pos flow of charge

V

_{bd}= -V_{db}and

V

_{db}= -V_{R2}so V

_{bd}= V_{R2}.This means that the current flowing from point d to point b gained potential energy. However the flow of charge from d to b are electrons and electrons lose potential energy as they move from lower to higher potentials. So when I look at it in that point of view

V

_{bd}should be equal to -V_{R2}.Can someone clarify to me why I am wrong.
