what are some ways to transfer the motion of electric charge through a conductor? confused please help


I am confused by the question. Electrons are moving because of thermal energy all the time in a conductor. To get them to drift in one direction mainly, an electric field is imposed on the conductor (voltage difference).

At high frequencies, the electron flow is entirely on the skin of the conductor, due to reasons probably well above your class level.
