    What current wilayah not flow in incomplete circuit?
    I have a battery and wire, if I connect one side of the wire to the positive side of battery , why the electron inside the wire(which do not connect to the negative battery side,so that side of wire is in zero voltage) will not drift to the positive side of battery?
