Description

What is electricity? How does electricity work? There are many forms of electricity:AC, DC, electrostatic, sparks, arcs, gas discharge and corona discharge, but all are variations of the same principle. This video goes through them all.

This is an improved version of the previous video. The battery chemistry example was improved, the generator and solar power explanations were added, and some minor tweaks were done. Thanks for the feedback in the comments to the previous version!
