What do mean by flow of electron, Electrical Engineering

Flow of electrons - Electrons flow down a wire that is what current, is. Good conductors like copper and silver and aluminum have free electrons in their outer shells, and they jump from atom to atom down a wire. It is somewhat same to water flowing down a pipe.

It's kind of amazing that you can force this to occur with a battery or a magnet, and that you can transmit energy this way, but that's what it does.
