electromagnetic induction

plastic is a good insulator

1. add all energy sources up...94.02 2. add up renewable sources...8.832 3. Do renewable divided by all 8.832/94.02 = .093 Move the decimal to the right twice = 9.3%

Input= mechanical energy output= electric energy


an insulator


input = electric energy output = mechanical energy

electric generator

good conductors

steam, ocean waves, water, pressure




When electrons move in one direction we get electric current or electricity

glass, paper, and plastic






a conductor

Michael Faraday in 1831


Electricity is caused by a changing magnetic field.

mechanical energy

moving a magnet in a tube wrapped in copper wires creates an electrical current

electric generator

nucleus and electrons


electric motor

1. solar 2. hydro 3. wind 4. geothermal 5. biomas
