why current flows in opposite direction of electrons?

1 Answer

Hi team, the current flow is nothing but flow of electrons

But the conventional direction I'd opposite to actual current flow

Description : A sine wave voltage is applied across an inductor. When the frequency of the voltage is decreased, the current decreases.

Answer : The question seems to be wrong. Increase in frequency would actually decrease the current through the Inductor. This happens because inductive reactance Xl is directly proportional to frequency. And if frequency increases the value of Xl would ... vice versa. Xl= 2*pi*f*L I=E/Z Z=sqrt(R^2+Xl^2)

Answer : Inductor is a wire wounding structure having a core material it induces emf which is opposite to the voltage supply and proportional to rate of change of current so current lags the voltage in inductor

Description : Why does induction motor have high starting current?

Answer : In induction motor , the flux produce is quadrature to the applied voltage. Since when we are going to start motor , there is no flux present inside .
