All About Electricity

Who discovered electricity?

Well William Gilbert discovered electricity {but Benjamin Franklin discovered that lightning is just the same thing as electricity}.

Why do we have electricity {why do we use it}?

First thing we have electricity for everything.

We use electricity for tv, phones, i pads, and laptops and even more.

we love electricity.

I can tell you about electricity.

facts

*Electricity at more than 186,000 miles per second – at the speed of light

*Benjamin Franklin did not discover electricity, but he did prove that  lightning is a source of electrical power

*The first power plant owned by Thomas Edison opened in New York City in 1882

 

what is Electricity

a form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), either statically as an accumulation of charge or dynamically as a current.

I can tell you about electricity (year six homework)

                                     What would it be without electricity?

There would be no electronics. The only source of light will be the day light. There would be no traffic lights (which means lots of incidents).lastly, there would be no way to cook, there are no plugs because there isn’t electricity.

                                Interesting things to know about electricity

                             Bengerman Franklin is the founder of electricity.

                         The founder discovered electricity while flying a kite. He got struck by lightning.

Electricity travels through your body as well as metal. 

     Electricity travels at the speed of light.

Electricity Homework 23/04/17

Electricity.

Its an amazing thing that is used daily by billions of people.

But what is it? How is it made? Is it dangerous?

This document will tell you everything you need to know about electricity.

What is electricity?

Electricity is a type of power which is used every day. It can be made by lots of sources and can occasionally be dangerous.

What are batteries?

Batteries are small metal containers filled with electricity. They are used to power things such as TV remotes of small lamps.

How is electricity made?

Electricity is made by many different things. A few of the main sources are:

Burning fossil fuels

Wind turbines

Water wheels

And many more.

Can electricity be dangerous?

Yes!

Electricity can be dangerous in many ways, some being:

Open plug sockets causing electric shocks

Putting knifes in toasters can conduct electricity, causing an electric shock

Even things like leaving plug sockets turned on for a long time and letting devices overheat,can cause a unwanted fire!

So remember:

Turn plugs sockets off and unplug the devices when you are finished

Don’t let things like phones and tablets overheat

Don’t put things that conduct electricity, like metal silverware, in other electrical items, even if they are turned off.

Also remember to recycle tunings like used batteries!

 

I hope that this document on electricity has helped you better understand how to use electricity and how to stay safe when using it.

home work- Can you research different types of circuits?

                          Different types of circuit

Have you ever wondered how a vacuum works, a light switch, or the television? Have you ever wondered how electric gets to what ever you are you are using so quickly? The electricity goes through circuits.

                                                                          

What do circuits work?

Circuits are like a path ways of wires that electricity can flow through.  A battery, or a power source provides voyage, allowing electrons to move. Then, This would then allow whatever is using this power, to work. When you switch on a light switch, or use the vacuum cleaner, you know how it works.

Different circuits

There are two different types of circuits. One is called a series circuit and the other is called a parallel circuit.

A series circuitShows a circuit with a battery and two lamps connected in series.

A series circuit is similar to a series on the TV. Just like you get episode, after episode, you get components one after the other. If you put more than one light in a series circuit, the lights would be dimmer than if you had just the one light bulb.

This type of circuit is useful, if you want to know if one of the components has stopped working. You would know this as for, if one of the components stop working, then the circuit will be broken and the rest of the components will stop working. It uses less wiring than a parallel circuit.

A parallel circuitShows a circuit with a battery and two lamps connected in parallel

Parallel circuits have more than one path for electricity to flow through. No matter how many lights you add, unlike the series circuit, the lights do not dim, or change.

Also unlike the the series circuit, if one of the components break, or blow up, the rest of the bulbs continue to work fine, without being affected.

That is what makes parallel circuits so useful and helpful , if you want everything to work, even if one light failed. This is why most home are fully wired up with parallel circuits.

Gizmo’s tales

Gizmo.

You will not get who it is, unless you are someone from my class, or I have told you, so for the ones that do not know, I shall tell you. Gizmo is my cat. Yep! That is right! I named my cat after a Mogwai.

I called him this because when this Mogwai gets wet, he goes a bit crazy. Once, my cat fell into the bath and went crazy just like Gizmo from the Gremlins. He ran straight out the bath room, through the door and then… smashed straight into the sitting room door!!!

Another tale about Gizmo is surprising. Somehow, in the space of about 20 minutes, he had managed to bring in 2 mice, 1 bird and a baby bat, with the biggest wings ever. This was all around 04:00, on a school day…

Another time, he brought in a field mouse. First, it ran under my bag and as soon as we moved the bag to capture it, it ran straight behind the television. 2 and a half hours later, we are chasing it around a radiator, when we finally caught it!

             You may not believe me, but all of these stories are true…
