Current canceling in Neutral

  1. Aug 21, 2011 #1
    I have a questions about 120/240v service under balanced loads. When I have a balanced 120v loads the neutral carries no current. I understand the math and vectoral math to this. I am wondering if at molecular level in Quantum Physics if there is actually molecular friction and movement but it is not measurable by any conventional equipment like tong meters? Normally current flows back to source of what created it. Maybe someone can assist with this.

    I would think that at the molecular level there would be movement or Molecular friction. I just need to get confirmation on my suspicion. For all intensive purpose there should be no current flow as far as a measurable level. Looking for any opinion on this issue...
