which is the best method to understand concepts?
conventional or electron flow?
I tend to go with physics, but that is a preference. Both work, which is what is important.
The reason I prefer to go with physics is later on, when the really advanced concepts come along, I have the model firmly in my head.
This topic has been pounded to death. You would do well to search this forum for threads for this subject. Then assimulate the material and ask questions afterwards. Here are two links to get you started.
Use whichever one you feel the most comfortable with. As long
as you are consistent and don't change your definition halfway
through a calculation, it doesn't matter which choice you use
because either way, you will obtain the right answer.
Personally, as a physicist, I am used to the conventional current
(positive current is the direction in which a positively charged
object moves) so I use that.
