When an electric cell is connected to a circuit, electrons flow away from the negative terminal in the circuit. But within the cell, electrons flow to the negative terminal. Explain.
Step 1 of 1
The electrons flow away from the negative terminal and towards the positive terminal, outside of the battery.
The charge is conserved, that is, current does not disappear or appear out of nowhere.
The electrons flow between the terminals from the positive terminal to the negative terminal, inside of the battery.
