electricity was never invented. it has always been there. it is said that Benjamin Franklin discoved electricity. if he didnt dicover it there would be no electronics although some1 else would probably discover it

AnswerElectricity was identified as synonymous with lightning by Franklin, who did several experiments with it. Further, Franklin did not "invent" it; no one did. It was a known energy force quite awhile before his experiments.

Electricity itself--the motion of electrons--is an inherent property of every material in the universe. Without it, the universe as we know it would not exist.

Also, we wouldn't have all those awesome Video Games, TV, and computer. :(:(:(

Nothing. We still would have had electricity. Contrary to belief, Ben Franklin did not discover electricity. He discovered some of its properties.

Well, if America was never discovered, the world would be much "slower". The technology wouldn't be so good. There won't be any American Idol and stuff like that.

What is Benjamin Franklin use to discover electricity?

Benjamin Franklin did not discover electricity. He performed many experiments with electricity, but saying that he "discovered" it is like saying that Charles Lindbergh discovered the airplane. Bad analogy. An airplane is man-made. Electricity is a natural phenomenon which, like the magnetic field or atomic structure, can be discovered. For a man-made object on the other hand, the proper verb would be "invent" - Lindberg of course did not invent the airplane but someone did. No one "invented" electricity, but the phenomenon was unrecognized until someone, or a series of persons, discovered its existence.
