How is electricity used exactly?


Electricity is produced when there is a presence or flow of charged particles.

The negatively charged particles in, well, everything are called electrons.

When these electrons flow freely in metals, this means they are good conductors of electricity.

Now, when a battery pushes them to travel around a complete circuit, this is called an electric current.

This powers most of our things, like the gadget where you’re reading this right now.

On the other hand, static electricity is the build-up of electrons on some form of material that does not produce electricity – otherwise called an insulator.

For example, a jumper and a balloon are two different things made up of different insulating materials.

Once you start rubbing, the electrons would start to move around and build up in the insulator, in this case, the balloon.
