It is the flow of charge that matters -- electrical current is defined as the flow of charge. " -person W
[...] if the flow of charge is all that matters; and electrons with their charge attached are all that flow through metal wires then wouldn't the electric current (defined as a the flow of charge) equal the electrons flowing because they are all that flow through wires. Protons don't flow through wires, so how could the proton and it's charge flow in the opposite direction of the electron flow if it doesn't move ?
Does the proton charge get detached from the proton by the force of the electron opposite from it. - person M
