13:50 Volta     -Voltaic pile made possible studying electrical phenomena     Orsted     -Moving electric current generates a magnetic field     Faroday     -Moving magnetic field generates an electric current     Subsequent improvements 1)Doesn’t matter whether magnet moves or electric conductor move, as  long as one moves relative to the other 2)Rotary motion is superior to reproducing motor -Every company that manufactures electricity, regardless of how company  is structured, comes down to the same question? -How do I supply this electrical current to the rotary generator for the  cheapest amount of money If we connect a waterwheel to a generator we are in business There is one axel that runs from waterwheel to generator and generates  electricity Hydroelectricity -Means water is making the generator go. (water is used to turn  generator) Efficiency=work output/energy input=output/input
