Electrical polarity

From Fiswiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Electrical polarity (positive and negative) is present in every electrical circuit. Electrons flow from the negative pole to the positive pole. In a direct current (DC) circuit, one pole is always negative, the other pole is always positive and the electrons flow in one direction only.

In an alternating current (AC) circuit the two poles alternate between negative and positive and the direction of the electron flow continually reverses.
