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 »

Copper is a good conductor of electricity because the valence electrons are free and repel each other so strongly that it causes the repulsion of other electrons. This essentially forces the electricity down the piece of... More »

Electricity is the flow of electrons through a conductor. Electricity is based on the principle that all matter has negatively and positively charged particles within its atoms. 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 »
