There are three concepts that are used to explain atomic bonding, all based upon the principles of electrostatics and are referred to as: ionic, covalent and metallic
the counteracting force of ‘electrostatic repulsion’ between electrons. This force, as defined by Coulomb’s law, operates between the valence electrons and acts to force them apart, rather than ‘pair’ them together.
There is no route that the generator’s electrons can take through a mobile cloud of valence electrons drifting amongst the lattice of atoms, which would enable them to avoid the constant mutual electrostatic repulsion from blocking their flow along the wire and interfering with their ability to bond with neighbouring atoms.
