In my tackk I will be talking about electricity.
Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity while flying a kite with a key tied onto the rope in a thunder storm.
Electricity is the form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles.
-Electric current is measured in amperes (amps).
-Electric potential energy is measured in volts.
-Electric circuits can contain parts such as switches, transformers, resistors and transformers.
-Electricity travels at the speed of light - more than 186,000 miles per second.
-A spark of static electricity can measure up to three thousand (3,000) volts.
Electricity plays a role in the natural world by powering computers, lights, air condition/heating, etc.
