    […] Electrons are negatively charged and protons are positively charged while neutrons are neutrally charged. At the same time the number of electrons and protons in an atom is always same. Now, if, by any means, few electrons can move away from the atom of object A to atom of object B, then object A will get positively charged due to deficiency of electrons while object B will get positively charged due to excess electrons. In such case object A will be called Positively Charged and object B will be called Negatively Charged. This is how electricity is generated. […]

    […] Electricity is generated or produced by turning or rotation of turbines. These turbines can be rotated by any means – coal, steam, nuclear energy, renewable energy etc. In most power plants, turbines are rotated by the pressure of steam. This steam is created by boiling water using burning coal in large boilers. The pressure of steam is such that is turns the turbines, which in turn generates electricity. Hydroelectricity uses the force of running water downstream a man-made water reservoir dam. The great force of the running water turns the turbines. The motive is to turn the turbines by any means.
