Electrons in the outer orbit, or shell, can often be drawn away from the atom and become free electrons.
Automotive electricity uses the conventional theory in all electrical diagrams and schematics.ELECTRICITYConventional Theory versus Electron Theory
resistance (ohms) and current flow (amperes).ELECTRICITYVolts
FIGURE 3-19 Resistance to the flow of electrons through a conductor is measured in ohms.
FIGURE 3-21 Electron flow is produced by heating the connection of two different metals.
FIGURE 3-22 Electron flow is produced by light
striking a light-sensitive material.
