Nothing technical, no mathematics. Just an explanation of what electricity is. I am having a time understanding the whole idea of how electricity works because I don't understand what electricity is. Please don't just say energy or power or a technical answer I need something more tangible to understand.
Please give the simplest explanation of what electricity exactly is
- Electronic – Neophyte question about AC vs. DC (especially for powering a home)
- Electronic – standard/foolproof way to tell what input or output impedance is
- Electronic – How to use the electricity from a generator in an efficient way
- Electronic – arduino – how to safely use triac
- Electronic – What does the value of reactive power represent physically
- Electronic – What happens to the electrical grid when I turn on a heavy load
It's mostly about electrons that are not too strongly anchored to atoms - mainly metallic elements have electrons like this - they have lots of "free" electrons and, importantly, electrons are negatively charged and that means when they flow there is a transport of charge (1.60217657 × 10-19 coulombs per electron). That flow of charge is electric current.
