Electric current in simple circuits

Electric current flow is almost always a flow of negatively charged electrons from negative to positive. This seems funny and illogical but it is because the first researchers into electricity guessed which way the current would flow and they guessed wrong. The notes below explain

the circuit symbols used for the most common components of electric circuits

the connection between electric charge and electric current

the basic rules governing how electric current flows.

an introduction to some basic equations and calculations involving current flow
