Can someone please explain to me how does current flow opposite electrons when current is the flow of electrons? How does that make sense. In my head, that statement is telling me electrons is flowing opposite electrons. I know am interpreting it wrong but i can't figure it out?

Because current is the flow of charge. When electrons flow one way, the charge flows the other way, as each electron has the charge of (-1). So total charge transferred each second = charge on each particle*number of particles transferred each second, which is, in arbitrary units, (-1)*number of particles transferred each second. This means charge will be the exact opposite of how many electrons were transferred from one place to anotherLast edited by MathsMaxMapsMats; 26-06-2016 at 20:15.
