produces, light, heat, sound and runs appliances such as ovens, television sets, and steros and powers light bulbs.
WHO HAS...
A famous inventor that used a kite experiment to prove that electricity in the air produces lightning?
I HAVE...
Benjamin Franklin
WHO HAS...
"voltage" defined?
I HAVE...
the force of the electricity as it travels along a pathway
WHO HAS...
A famous inventor who developed the light bulb?

WHO HAS...
An object that pulls iron and steel things to it?
I HAVE...
magnet
WHO HAS...
Examples of good conductors for an electric circuit?
I HAVE...
