Hi, I'm currently investigating magnetic fields/their cause. This has inevitably led me to learn all about electrons. Here I want to post my understanding on electron 'spin' so people can correct me if I'm wrong/help others get a better understanding. So I watched this YouTube video for research: From what I understand, 'electron spin' is not an actual spin, but which way an electron attracts/repels. Since electrons exist as quantum particle clouds (and in the video it describes electrons as infinitely small points at ~7:20) 'spin' isn't really a thing they do. Essentially half electrons attract one way and half attract the other. It doesn't matter which orientation they are being tested in: it will always be roughly 50/50. This leads onto a big question: in a wire where electrons travel, why does the magnetic field induced always go anticlockwise if the electron current is flowing towards you? Surely if quantum mechanics dictates a 50/50 on electron spin, wouldn't it be a 50/50 chance the magnetic field would spin the other way? Maybe there's an answer to this or maybe this is one of science's yet-to-be-answered questions. It would be useful to know why if possible though.
