Question

Why current flows from higher potential to lower potential?


Solution

Electrone generally flow from negative to positive
current flow in opposite to this

We consider it as this direction

So although electrons would flow from negative to positive, by convention (agreement), physicists refer to conventional current as a flow from high potential/voltage (positive) to low potential/voltage (negative). ... Electrons move from "-" to "+", but conventional current is considered to move in the other direction
