Question

Potential difference is applied across the ends of a conductor. Choose the correct statement.
  1. Protons move from the point which is at lower potential to the point which is at higher potential
  2. Electrons move from the point which is at higher potential to the point which is at lower potential
  3. Electrons move from the point which is at lower potential to the point which is at higher potential
  4. Protons move from the point which is at higher potential to the point which is at lower potential


Solution

The correct option is C Electrons move from the point which is at lower potential to the point which is at higher potential
When a wire is connected between two points and the potential difference between the two points is non- zero, current flows from the higher potential to the lower potential. As electrons flows in the opposite direction to the current, they move from the lower to higher potential.
