    Hi all!

    Just wanted to know if this is correct:

    An electric field, in a circuit, is produced by the electrochemical reactions by the power source (e.g. cell). The chemical reactions within the batteries separate, and cause, the positive charges to accumulate on one side and the negative charges to accumulate on the other. This accumulation causes the free-charges (electrons) within the circuit to drift along due to a force experienced from the electric field, that has been set-up by the battery.

    Is this right? If it isn't, please can anyone explain and make amendments!

    Thanks a lot!
