How Electricity is Produce?

The movement of these electrons produces what we called electricity.

Atoms are the building blocks of the universe. Everything are made up of atoms. From solid objects, to liquid to gas, all are made up from atoms. The stars above, the clouds, the soil, the rocks water and air, including the human body are compose of atoms.

The atoms are further made of smaller particles. Within the center of the atom is the nucleus with the particles called protons and neutrons.

Spinning around the nucleus are the electrons, much smaller in size than that of protons and neutrons. They spin around in shells a great distance from the nucleus.

An electrical force held in the shells of the electrons. Inside the atom, the proton and the electron are attracted to each other. The protons and the electron both carry an electrical charge. Electrical charge is a force within the particle. The protons have a positive charge (+) and the electrons have a negative charge (-).

The charge of the neutron is equal to the negative charge of the electron. Attraction comes within opposite charges ( positive and negative) that’s why neutron and electron attracts each other.

When the number of protons and electrons are equal, the atom is balance. Neutrons in an atom has no charge and vary in numbers.

The electron remains in a constant distance from the nucleus of an atom in their precise shells. The shells that are closest to the nucleus can hold up to two electrons, the next can hold up to eight and the other outer shells can hold more.

Strong force of attraction developed within the electron closest to the nucleus. Applying a force to them can make them move from one atom to another atom.

The movement of these electrons produces what we called electricity.
