when there is difference in potential of any two points in that condition the potential electricity turns into kinetic we can also explain it as since electricity is a form of energy so potential energy changes into kinetic only when there is difference in potential of two points

What are the benefits of having a gas kitchen stove rather than and electric kitchen stove?

Among the advantages of using a gas stove over an electric stove are the idea that, in the event of a power outage, a gas stove is always readily available to cook. Gas stoves also tend to be more accurate, as the temperature change is instant.

When the burner on an electric stove glows red is this a physical or chemical change?

This is indeed a physical change. There is a colour change, but if the substance is cooled down it is still the same. All that providing electricity is really doing is adding Energy to the burner.

What is the energy change in an electric train?

Electricity is changed to kinetic energy by causing the train to move. Electricity in the motor causes a force to be applied to the armature and transferred through a drive system to apply a motive force which results in motion.

Is electricity a physical change or a chemical change?

How can piezoelectric materials generate electricity from human footsteps?

Just place a piezo electric crystal in your shoe then due to alternate change of your feet causes mechanical stress and strain .Inverse piezo electric effect states that when stress and strain is given along mechanical axes it creates electricity along electrical axes.Thus piezo electric crystal converts mechanical energy to electrical energy.

How can electricity affect chemical reactions?

Yes. Electricity can cause a chemical change. On the History channel they showed electricity doing something to a copper penny that made a chemical change .(don't exactly what the electricity did to it but it did cause a chemical change)

How do scientists change geothermal energy into electricity?

Geothermal energy manifests by ejecting steam from the ground. This steam is piped to a power plant where it is injected to turbines that are coupled to electric generators.

Why didn't the electric car catch on and become successful?

Most likely reasons: 1) lack of drivability range usually only about 60 miles 2) no real savings, just a change of "point of purchase". Instead of going to the gas station, you plug into your home and still pay for the electricity needed to charge the vehicle.

Supposedly you can save electric and your pocket change by using power strips but if I have the power strip on off doesn't it still draw electricity since it's plugged in?

No, because when you turn it off it flips a switch open so there is no path for the electricity to flow through.
