Apparently, this would be an easy question but I really have no clue. Consider a battery connected by a simple wire from positive terminal to the negative terminal. How do electrons flow? From -ve to +ve terminal? Right? NOW, how does it move so? In most texts, they say due to the potential difference and the electric field produced by the +ve terminal. Now consider the +ve side, they direct electric field to the right for example, the electrons then must be attracted to the left. How do they move along the wire? Thanks in advance for any help
