    Hi guys
    as I know the electrons ( current ) flow from the negative side to positive side because electrons are pulled by the positive charge
    so my question is why in circuit analysis we assume that current flow from the positive area to negative area ??

    Thank you

    zaidqais,

    This will get you started. Notice that charge flows and current does not. Current already is charge flow. http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=21280&highlight=conventional
