We all know that, when some electric changes is happening, flow of electrons will be there.
So, what would be the number of electrons, which will be required to transfer 1 MB of data?

Note: I am talking about the electrons that are to do with the data only.

In this case no electrons are transferred, this is because for an AC Signal the net electron sent is always zero also we know a circuit is always a closed path. So practically speaking it has two conductors.

hence the electrons that are sent in one one conductor will always be received in another conductor so there is no transfer of electrons.
