What is electricity?

What is electricity- Flow of electric charge is known as electricity. By using electricity, we can transfer energy In ways that enable us to perform common tasks. Its most well-known form is electrons flow through conductors like copper wires. Sometimes we mean that Electricity means electrical energy. But they are totally two different things. Electricity is an electrical… Read More »

What is Electric Power?

Voltage and current are two fundamental electrical circuit parameters. However, only voltage and current are not enough to express an electrical circuit element’s behaviour. Essentially, we need to understand how much electrical power a circuit element can manage. We have all seen that an electric lamp of 60 watts provides less light than an electric lamp of 100… Read More »

What Is Electric Charge

Every matter is produced up of atoms in this universe. The atoms are neutral electrically. This is because the amount of protons and electrons in each atom is equal. Protons are charged Positively. Today, I will describe the electric charge in simple words. In an atom, protons sit together with electrically neutral neutrons in the central nucleus. The… Read More »

What is Electrical Energy?

Let’s try to review the potential difference between two points in an electrical field before explaining what is electrical energy. Suppose the potential difference between point A and point B is V volt. Based on the definition of potential difference, we can say that if one positive electrical load unit that is a body that contains one – coulomb positive load travels from point A to point B, it will… Read More »

Ionization Energy

An element’s ability to deliver its outermost electrons to form positive ions is manifested in the amount of energy supplied to its atoms sufficiently to remove the electrons from it. This energy is known as the ionization energy. Simply, the Ionisation Energy is the energy supplied to an atom or molecule to knock out its most loosely bound… Read More »

Types of Cables

Cables are classified depending upon the material used for insulation such as paper, rubber or asbestos. Paper tapes of about 10 cms to 15 cms thickness can be wound on to a conductor in successive layers to achieve a required operating voltage and is used for voltages of 10 kV and above. In the mass-impregnation construction the paper… Read More »
