What is Electricity?

Electricity is the family of physical phenomena associated with the presence and motion of matter that has a property of electric charge. The movement of electrical charges (such as electrons, protons, and ions via electromagnetic fields) gives rise to an array of physical entities and processes, including magnetism and Electrostatics. The affiliated fundamental causes are explored in physics. Electrically charged matter is held together by electrical forces, which are mediated by photons or other bosons.

Electricity is a thing associated with the presence and motion of matter that has a property of electric charge. When found in combination it can make things act with a different quality than when they are not combined, because of invisible forces which act on them. Electricity involves the presence and motion of matter that has a property of electric charge (electricity) so it is a physical phenomenon involving charge and motion. Electricity is a natural phenomenon that exists throughout the universe. It consists of the movement of electrons through a material, usually in the form of a magnetic field. It occurs due to the existence of an electric field that exerts an attractive or repulsive force on charged particles.

Electricity is the movement of electrical charge through a conducting material. The charge carriers are electrons for negative charge and positive ions for positive charge. Surfaces can conduct electricity due to the π-electrons that reside on atoms. A material with high conductivity will have more mobile charge carriers than one with low conductivity.
