    Electricity is a general term for the variety of phenomena resulting from the presence and flow of electric charge. Together with magnetism, it constitutes the fundamental interaction known as electromagnetism. It includes many well-known physical phenomena such as lightning, electric fields and electric currents, and is put to use in industrial applications such as electronics and electric power.

    Electricity is the result of heating up carbon atoms. The outside rings of a carbon atom have electrons. When the atom is heated, the electrons begin to move faster and faster until the electrons fly off the atom and go to the next atom, causing an imbalance in that atom, so that atom needs to get rid of the rogue electron and this causes a chain reaction of electrons to start flowing. That's why there is a Pos. and neg. to electricity. Each electron is trying to get back to it's original atom.

    Example: Charging a battery removes electrons from the negative side and and puts them on the positive side. They stay there until the two sides make connection, like a light bulb. Then the electrons begin to flow back to their original side of the battery. After they all return, we call it a dead battery and must be recharged.
