    Ella True 11/16/14 Schneck 3 Honors Chemistry Energy Persuasive Essay Before reading this paper, one should understand what electricity is and how it works. One should also understand that electricity is a type of energy. Electricity is simply the flow of electric charge. This may sound fairly straight forward, but there is a lot more to this simple statement. One might wonder: Where exactly is this charge coming from? What is obtaining this charge?

    I. Purpose: The purpose of this lab is best understood by the principles of static electricity, as two rough objects rub against each other the atoms of those objects touch and pull upon each other sporadically. When this occurs the electrons of those atoms will transfer between these objects and static electricity is generated. This lab is performed to see the role that static electricity has on objects, when determining their charge and how they interact, all seen by a firsthand course of…

    2 Copper is a good conductor of electricity. Copper is good conductor of electricity because it contains free electrons. Copper has one free electron per atom. The free electron concentration in copper is 8.5 x 1028 per m3. The electrons start flowing as soon as the switch is closed. But the electrons themselves travel much more slowly. So how does the current come on everywhere as soon as the switch is closed? It is because the free electrons are already spread throughout the wire. As soon as…

    power to create electricity This question can help save electricity and offer a new way to conduct power. It is also an interesting topic to test on. The hypothesis states that different produce can conduct enough power to create electricity, because Zinc and Copper (the two elements I am testing) have a certain relationships with one another. Zinc gives its electrons to the copper, which uses the electrons to make a hydrogen gas. Section 1 Important words/phrases Electricity is created in…
