Electric energy is the energy created by electrons moving through an electrical conductor. The world is made of matter. All matter contains atoms that contain electrons that are always moving. When electrons are forced d... More »

Electrical boilers are typically more efficient at converting fuel into heat than other designs, although their overall efficiency depends on the power source. The cost of using an electrical boiler varies depending on t... More »

Although many people think water conducts electricity well, pure water is a poor conductor since its molecules do not have free electrons to travel and thus transfer current. Pure water, however, rarely exists in nature.... More »

Electricity is the flow of electrons through a conductor. Materials that conduct electricity easily have a weak hold on their outermost electrons, allowing them to move easily from one atom to another. When an electron m... More »

Electromagnetic induction is the phenomenon of using a magnet to create, or induce, a magnetic field in a conductor while simultaneously dislodging free electrons within it. This produces a flow of current and a rising a... More »

Graphite is a good conductor of electricity because its electrons are delocalized or free to move around. Graphite is structured into planes with tightly bound atoms. There is a great deal of distance between planes, and... More »
