Electricity is all around us. It moves the entire planet. Most, if not all activities significant to our lives involves electricity. The evolution of our world, corresponded with the advent of electricity.

But how much do we know about electricity. More importantly, how much do we not know about electricity?

Electricity is viewed as productive. Electricity is also viewed with amazement and danger by the others. Especially those who have less understanding.

As electrical engineer, it is one of our responsibilities to educate people about electricity.

This entry is a collection of the best article, and information in the web related to electricity.
Basic information, myths, and misconception busters.

ELECTRICITY BASIC DEFINITION
