# As we say definition of current is flow of charges then why we give the direction of current from +ve to -ve????

done_all
Current flow is like water, water flows from higher level to lower level. Same thing with current, current flows from higher voltage to lower voltage level. The flow of current is in opposite direction of the electron, electron flow from -ve to +ve and current flow from +ve to -ve.
Thanks,then we should have to change the definition of current.because current is flow opposite to flow of electrons.it may definition of conventional current.
Well proved and elaborated.
current  is  the  flow  of  holes  from  anode  to  cathode  and  it  can  be  said  f

Description : Why is it that protons are not considered a source of moving charges for current flow?

Answer : Protons themselves are not mobile positive charges because they are tightly bound in the nucleus of the atom and cannot be released except by nuclear forces. Therefore, a current of positive charges is a flow of  either positive ions in liquids and gases or positive holes in semiconductors.

Description : The brain is much more active at night than during the day. Logically, you would think that all the moving around, complicated calculations and tasks and general interaction we do on a daily basis during our working hours would take a lot more brain power than, say, lying in bed.

Scientists don’t yet know why this is but you can thank the hard work of your brain while you sleep for all those pleasant dreams.

Description :  on analyzing the result of an competitive exam the teacher found that the average for the entire the class was 69 marks. If we say that average of 10 % of the students scored 77 marks and average of 28 % of the students scored 66 marks, then calculate average marks of the remaining students of the class A) 67.54 B) 68.26 C) 66.91 D) 69.06

Answer : D) average of entire class = 69marks average of 28 % of the students = 66 marks average of 10% of the students = 77 marks then % of remaining students = (100- 10 - 28) = 62% let the average of 62% of the ... (62*x)+770+1848= 6900 62 * x = 6900-770-1848 62*x = 4282 x = 69.06

Description : There is a bridge besides a river. Two friends Arun and varun started their journey from place L, moved to the garden located at another place M & then returned to place L. Arun moves by swimming at a speed of 30 km/hr while Varun sails on a boat at a speed of about 24km/hr. If the flow of water current is at the speed of 12km/hr, what will be the average speed of boat sailor? A) 36 B) 18 C) 24 D) 48

Answer : ANSWER:B Explanation: As Arun swims both the ways at the speed of 30km/hr, the average speed of swimming is 30 km/hr Being a boat sailor, varun moves downstream at speed =24 +12=36km/hr and upstream at speed = 24-12= ... Upstream Speed])] = (36*12)/0.5(36+12) km/hr = 432/24 km/hr = 18 km/hr
