Electricity
ELECTRICITY is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence of electric charge . Although initially considered a phenomenon separate from magnetism , since the development of Maxwell's Equations, both are recognized as part of a single phenomenon: electromagnetism . Various common phenomena are related to electricity, including lightning , static electricity , electric heating , electric discharges and many others. In addition, electricity is at the heart of many modern technologies. The presence of an electric charge, which can be either positive or negative, produces an electric field . On the other hand, the movement of electric charges, which is known as electric current , produces a magnetic field . When a charge is placed in a location with non-zero electric field, a force will act on it. The magnitude of this force is given by Coulomb\'s Law . Thus, if that charge were to move, the electric field would be doing work on the electric charge

Power Station
A POWER STATION, also referred to as a POWER PLANT or POWERHOUSE and sometimes GENERATING STATION or GENERATING PLANT, is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power . Most power stations contain one or more generators , a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power . The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current . The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal , oil , and natural gas to generate electricity. Others use nuclear power , but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar , wind , wave and hydroelectric

Water Mill
A WATERMILL or WATER MILL is a mill that utilizes hydropower . It is a structure that uses a water wheel or water turbine to drive a mechanical process such as milling (grinding) , rolling , or hammering . Such processes are needed in the production of many material goods, including flour , lumber , paper , textiles , and many metal products. These watermills may be comprise gristmills , sawmills , paper mills , textile mills , hammermills , trip hammering mills, rolling mills , wire drawing mills. One major way to classify watermills is by wheel orientation (vertical or horizontal), one powered by a vertical waterwheel through a gearing mechanism, and the other equipped with a horizontal waterwheel without such a mechanism. The former type can be further divided, depending on where the water hits the wheel paddles, into undershot, overshot, breastshot and pitchback (backshot or reverse shot) waterwheel mills
