Basic Electricity 101

Chapter 1

Understanding of electricity begins with how is electricity created. This all starts with the atom and what is electricity exactly. The parts of an atom are the Proton, Neutron and Electron. The Proton and Neutron are in the nucleus of the atom or "center", and the Electron floats around the outside like the moon that circles the earth. Protons have a positive charge, Neutrons have a neutral charge, and Electrons have a negative charge. Electricity is the movement of electrons, how many and how fast we move those electrons.
