Electricity How It Works

We use electricity to make things work.

Electricity comes from different resources: from batteries or from electric socket.

Examples of things that get electricity from batteries are: calculator, torch (flash light), clock, watch, cellular phone, remote control, small radio, toys, camera, door bell, small TV, etc.

Examples of things that get electricity from electric socket are: television, refrigerator, oven, fan, radio, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, hair dryer, lamp, iron, computer, microphone, etc.

Those things work when they are connected to the electricity. Without electricity, they cannot work.

To get electricity, we have to plug in the wire into electricity socket.

Things change electricity into different forms; they are heat, light, sound or motion.

Examples of things change electricity into heat are: iron, lamp, refrigerator, TV, hair dryer, oven, etc.

Examples of things change electricity into sound are: TV, radio, microphone, door bell, vacuum cleaner, telephone, cellular phone, etc.

Examples of things change electricity into light are: lamp, TV, computer, cellular phone, etc.

Examples of things change electricity into motion are: fan, toys (robot, tamiya), washing machine, etc.

Electricity comes to our house through wires.

Electricity is precious. We have to pay for it every month.
