Energy & Electricity in Science : How Does a Light Bulb Work?

Hi, I’m Steve Jones, and I am going to tell you how a light bulb works. Well, first of all we have to see the construction of the light bulb. In fact, the working part is what we call a filament which is a thin piece of metal, and this gets white hot. It glows […]

Mapping Electricity Infrastructure with Deep Learning

Great thanks so much, Kyle. I’m Wendell, I’m a Master’s student at the Nicholas School studying energy & environment. Our teammates and I are very excited to be here today to tell you about our work the past year. I’m going to let them introduce themselves starting with Ben. Yes, hi everyone. My name’s Ben […]

Don’t Mix Electricity And Water!

Electricity and Magnetism – Electric Circuits

There are different types of circuits. The current in a series circuit can only flow in one path, and it must flow through all the circuit components. In this series circuit, the current flows through each of the bulbs in a sequence. Because all the loads in the circuit share the same current, the bulbs […]

Bruce Power to provide 30% of Ontario’s electricity through 2064

In 1968, Ontario commissioned the country’s first commercial nuclear reactor on what is now the Bruce Power site. Almost 50 years later, that site is now home to the largest operating nuclear facility in the world providing low-cost power to more than 3 million homes and businesses across Ontario. That’s 30 percent of the power […]

Nigeria Schoolgirl pee power energy generator – uses just pee to generate electricity

http://www.overunity.com/13101/urine-powered-generator-from-africa/ This is a new system designed by 4 schoolgirls from Nigeria, Africa with the help of their teacher to get an electrical generator system running on just ONLY Urine ! They used electrolysis to split Urine ( pee ) into hydrogen and clear it up via a liquid borax solution and then run a […]

Almost simple #2: What is the speed of ELECTRICITY?

What is the speed of electricity? An electric current is a flow of electric charge in one direction. Since we live in an electrically interconnect world, we could be easily lead to believe that electrons travel instantaneously or, a bit more accurate, at the speed of light. But that’s not what happens here. In this […]

(1 of 2) Electricity and Magnetism – Review of All Topics – AP Physics C

Bo: Hey, guys! Billy: Hey, Bo! Bobby: Hi, Bo! ♫ (lyrics) Flipping Physics ♫ Mr. P: Ladies and gentlepeople, the bell has rung, therefore class has begun. Therefore, you should be seated in your seat, ready and excited to review everything we learned in electricity and magnetism in AP Physics C. Here we go, are […]

What is Electricity?

Electricity exists all around us in nature. For example during storms raindrops can freeze into ice particles the friction between the particles creates an electric charge and this build up of energy is released through bolts of lightening some animals like electric eels can store energy and generate electric shocks used to hunt and fend […]
