# Thread: From which side the electrons move to?

1. Look at this picture. There is moving magnet, it is moving from right to left. SO from which side the electrons will move, S1 or S2.

2.

3. There is no way to tell from your crude diagram. Your coil is drawn flat, two-dimensional. To answer your question we would have to know if the wire is coiled clockwise or counter-clockwise, as seen from a particular end. We cannot tell from your picture. (Also, we will assume the magnet is inside the coil, not outside.)

This page will explain how to determine the direction of the induced current. Note: do NOT speak of the direction the electrons move. Refer instead to the direction of the current, which is opposite of the direction of the electrons. Why do I insist that you do this? Because everyone else does!

Now you must answer your own question, but you can only do so if you clarify the diagram. Check back here once you have the new diagram and your own answer, and give your reason.

4. Tell me the direction of the electrons, from S1 to + or from S2 to + ?? AND WHY? I didn't find the answer on that link, and I didnt find error on my picture.

5. No I won't.

You do it.

And it's direction of CURRENT, not electrons.

I WANT TO KNOW THE DIRECTION OF THE ELECTRONS! PLEASE ANSWER ME!
