OCR A2 Conventional Current ProblemWatch this thread
Question 1ci) asks you for the details on flow of directions, and you have to include the direction.
I assumed that you had to use conventional current, and put the direction as clockwise (from the capacitor into the resistor), because the charge had built up on the upper plate of the capacitor.
But in the mark scheme it says that the electrons move in the opposite direction: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/63477-m...ysics-june.pdf :/
How do I know which direction to use on another question - conventional current or the actual flow of directions? :/
In the case of your question, I think the clue lies in the part where the question says, "in terms of the movement of electrons", which I would interpret as the physical description of the flow, rather than the silly conventional way which I've always hated.
PS - what is 'flow of directions' ??? You mean flow of electrons?
