What is Electricity?
Electricity is the most versatile form of energy we currently have on our planet. We have become incredibly reliant in every aspect of our life on electricity.
Sometimes when we walk across a carpeted room and then touch something, that slight jolt we feel is electricity. The body gradually builds up an electric charge which needs to discharge and that charge is the tingling feeling we get.
Lightning is a massive surge of electricity that is the result of rain clouds rubbing against the air around them. This movement builds up a charge and eventually, it leaps to the ground. The energy in one bolt of lightning is enough to power 100, 60 watt light bulbs for an entire day. Sometimes you can feel the electrical energy in the air when a storm is brewing.
The bottom line, electric power is the rate at which electric energy is transferred. Electric power is measured by capacity and is commonly expressed in megawatts (MW). (One megawatt is equal to one million watts.)
