Harnessing ElectricityBook - 2008
Electricity is a necessity in today's modern society. It allows us to check our email, watch a movie on the television set, or turn on a lamp at the flip of a switch. But how does electricity work? Atoms contain negatively charged particles called electrons. Electric energy from the electrons can be harnessed into currents that run through two types of circuits--series and parallel. Generators and different types of power plants produce the electricity needed to operate our technological world.
