With the switch closed, the surplus electrons at the negative terminal will flow through the lamp back to the electron-deficient positive terminal. The lamp will light and the chemical energy of the battery will keep the electrons moving in this circuit from negative to positive. This movement from negative to positive is called the electron flow and will continue whilst the battery supplies the pressure - in other words whilst it remains charged. 3 A simple electrical circuit • Electron flow is from negative to positive.
2011 This fourth edition of Automobile Electrical and Electronic Systems was published! 2 Where next? 1 Current developments Greater electronic control continues to be a key area of development on the car. However, an emerging technology is the networked car and the endless possibilities that this could bring – some good, some bad of course. Hybrid cars are now mainstream and full EVs will not be far behind. An area that I speculate may become more significant is the use of satellite navigation systems for far more than getting you to a destination.
