The first ever electrical experiment was done by a Greek philosopher named Thales of Miletus. He found that by rubbing amber against an animals fur it would attract stationary objects. This phenomenon was later named static electricity. Our word, ‘electricity’ comes from a Greek word, ‘elektron’ which means amber. There are many different ways to generate electricity. The most widely used method used to generate electricity is what is called electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction is when a force of mechanical energy which is developed by a heat engine like hydroelectric power, wind power, tidal power, propels or forces an electrical generator to rotate and that in turn generates electricity. Most of the electricity produced all around the world is generated using this method. There are many different ways that a country produces it’s electrical power. Sometimes the method they use to create their electricity is based onREAD MORE!
