Hi, Thank you for reading this. I understand the functioning of DC current. You create a potential difference and the electrons flow from the power source through the electrical appliance (thereby, powering it) and flows back, completing the circuit. But, in AC, the electrons, according to what i read, move in one direction for sometime and then switch direction. And i read somewhere that there is no net movement. How does this work? I mean the electrons have to flow in one direction for them to reach the appliance, right? If they move forward and backward, how does it reach the destination? Please explain in simple terms. PS: I understand that my questions and my understanding of electricity may seem childish to people who know more than me.
