Because electrons and protons have opposite charge,it is analogous of saying that if an amount of electrons went from A to B, it is the same as protons moving from B to A as the charge changes on the source and end point is same. Apply electric fields to them and probably it is your answer.

Electrons experience a force opposite the direction of the electric field because they are negatively charged and the electric field direction is defined as the direction of the force on a positive charge.

The particles that carry charge through wires in a circuit are mobile electrons. The electric field direction within a circuit is by definition the direction that positive test charges are pushed. Thus, these negatively charged electrons move in the direction opposite the electric field.

I've read that electrons flow in the opposite direction to current. The resulting electromagnetic induction makes electricity flow through the wires. It has a generator head with wires, spinning inside a magnetic

An electron will move in the opposite direction of the electric field because of its negative charge. Therefore it will move toward the left . One could also think in terms of the electron being attracted to the positively charged plate.

The direction of an electric current is by convention the direction in which a positive charge would move. Thus, the current in the external circuit is directed away from the positive terminal and toward the negative terminal of the battery. Electrons would actually move through the wires in the opposite direction.

The electric field created due to the negative charge is radially inwards. But as there is another negative charge, due to E=F/Q (here Q is negative thus) feels a force in the direction radially away from the first negative charge. Thus Field would be towards the negative charge and force is opposite to the direction of this field. (3 votes)

As of September 2014, eight states still have electrocution available as an execution method, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. These states primarily use lethal injection for inmate executions, and the electric chair is used only at the convict's discretion in most jurisdictions.

You can bring an electric razor on a plane in either your carry-on luggage or your checked luggage. Although an electric shaver has blades inside they are not large enough to concern the TSA. Even a cordless electric shaver that will have a battery inside is permitted in both hand luggage and checked baggage.

Yes, you can bring an electric razor on a plane in your carry-on or checked luggage. If itâ€™s an expensive one itâ€™s probably better to pack it in your hand luggage rather than checked just in case your bag gets lost or the shaver goes missing.

You can bring an electric toothbrush on a plane in your carry-on bag. Itâ€™s not something the TSA worries about. The TSA is more worried about your toothpaste than your toothbrush which should be limited to 3.4 ounces! In fact, the best place to pack electric toothbrushes is in carry-on bags for three reasons.
