In this blog post, we’ll talk about what a negative charge is and how it behaves. As the name suggests, a negative charge will always move from an area with more to an area with less. This behavior can be attributed to two things: there’s more of them in one spot or they are attracted to something that has a positive charge. In the first case, more negative charge will accumulate in an area than positive. This is because there’s not enough positives to cancel them out and they keep coming until it has a surplus of negatives.

The second case is like magnets; one side with lots of charges (positive) and another with fewer charges (negative). An electric field pushes all the particles together so that each particle feels less repulsion from its neighbors as compared to if no such force was present. These two cases can be combined for even greater understanding: say you have positively charged rod on one end attached to something that makes electrons flow through it, but only negatively at the other end without this extra connection? Electrons would start accumulating near where there are too many negatives already
