    Isn't charge just a property of matter?
    Then why is it that current is referred to as a flow of charge. ( Here, it sounds like charge is an electron)


    Also, what exactly are the positive and negative terminals of a battery? Doe it have anything to do with being positively/negatively charged?

    Thanks

    Current is the flow of charged particles, which could be electron or ions.
