This question already has an answer here:
I'm just starting out learning about Electronics but something has puzzled me . I have read that current flows through a circuit from negative part of a battery to positive .
but what puzzles me is I made a simple series circuit of a Diode - Resistor - LED ........... Positive terminal is connected to the Diode so how does the LED light up if electricity flows from negative to the positive terminal ? If electricity flows from negative to positive the Diode would stop the flow and the LED would not light up?
