What is the Difference between AC and DC?

img1Electricity flows in AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current).  The major difference between these is the direction in which the electrons flow. In DC, the electrons will have a steady flow in one direction. They move forward. However, in AC, the electrons will switch directions. Sometimes they will go forward and sometimes they will go backwards.
