Sorry if this has been asked before. Could also be a really basic question (new to electrical study).
I am a bit confused about the relationship between electrons and charges. So what I understand is this: (1) One coulomb of charge has 6.24 x 10^18 electrons and (2) an electron always carries one charge. Does that mean that ALWAYS for any given amount of electrons, there will be the same amount of charges?
I am conceptually picturing in my head an electron "soldier". It carries a "charge". A soldier can only carry one charge. 6.24 x 10^18 "soldiers" equals one coulomb which simultaneously means the same number of charges. Each soldier also carries food (stored potential energy) which is measured volts, which gets used up as the soldier goes on his/her journey.
So the question is - am I going in the right direction in terms of conceptually understanding charges, electrons and less importantly, voltage?
