Electricity Facts

Can you imagine your life without electricity?? .. Do you know that electricity isn’t only a science but also an art? So due to its importance, Let us know together ten important facts about electricity:
(1) Electricity is generated by the movement of negative and positive small particles and once it leave its generating source, it instantly converted to another form of energy.
(2) Static electricity is generated when electrons jump from one object to another object.
(3) We consider electricity as a secondary energy source because it comes from other form of energy. In the same time electricity is the energy that mostly widely used.
(4) When two charged materials are placed near of each other, they either repel or attract each other and this is what we call electricity.
(5) The biggest source of electricity generation in the world is the coal as it burns in a furnace to heat a water boiler and then the water converted to a steam then the steam will move the turbines attached to electricity generator.
(6) Your heart consists of muscles cells which contacted by electricity motion inside your heart so electricity is playing an effective role in how your hear beats?. In the hospital, the electrocardiogram machine measures the electricity motion throw the human heart so when the person is healthy you will see line move throw the screen with a regular spikes when the heart beats.
(7) Electric fields are similar to the gravity, the difference is while the gravity always attracts materials the electric field can repulse or attract the materials.
(8) In “DC” electricity which means direct current, electrons go in one direction (batteries). In “AC” electricity which means alternating current, electrons change their direction from backwards to forward (electricity used in your home).
(9) At the year 1880, DC electricity is invented by Thomas Edison while AC electricity is invented by Nikola Tesla and the two scientist need for their system to be safer and to be used for longer distances, so the two win.
(10) Mr.Benjamin Franklin is the inventor of the lightning rod that protects the building in case of lightning stroke by conducting it to the ground throw wire.
So as electricity plays an effective role in everyday life and as electricity powers all our devices like TV, Light, refrigerator and so forth, which we cannot live without it, we should know more facts about it.
