Imagining the world without any use of electricity is very difficult these days. Small things like study lamps and big things like a plane require electricity. Human civilization has become very modern, and electricity is needed everywhere.
Here, some of the most notable uses of electricity daily are mentioned.
- Transport and Communication
Uses of Electricity in Entertainment
- Listening to music on MP3 players.
- Watching Television.
- Playing movies on DVDs, VCDs or VCRs runs on electricity.
Uses of Electricity in Healthcare
- Surgical operations
- Doctors need a powerful light during an operation on a patient
- Without electricity, the operation can prove fatal.
Uses of Electricity in Engineering
Constructions of buildings and structures for the convenience of people require electricity at every step. Building houses, installing gates and windows, and welding materials require current electricity to operate the machines.
Uses of Electricity in Transport and Communication
Reaching places or communicating from a different corner of the world is only possible because of electricity. A power cut during airline travel can be dangerous.
Uses of Electricity in Outdoors
The street lights on the road use electricity to function, even the pool requires electricity to heat the water in colder regions. The lawnmower, which is used to cut grass, uses electricity to operate. The water sprinkler for the grass on the lawn uses electricity as well.
Uses of Electricity in Household
Starting from toasters to refrigerators, microwaves, washing machines, dishwashers, electrical chimneys, and many more appliances which are simple to use and made for the convenience of day-to-day activities use electricity to function.
Uses of Electricity in commercial places
For the production of various materials, the factory uses heavy machinery which always runs on electricity. Even the magnets, which are giant-like structures, require electricity to keep them charged for lifting heavy metals.
Uses of Electricity in Office
We go to work in offices in which most things run on electricity. The lights, lifts, AC, coffee machine, ID card reader, biometric scanners and everything else require electricity.
Uses of Electricity as Fuel
Electrical energy comes under renewable energy, and we can produce it using most of the natural resources available to us. Today, things which were running on fossil fuels, such as cars and bikes, are now made in such a way that it runs on electricity (like solar-powered), which will be more convenient in the future.
Uses of Electricity in Space
The satellites and probes which are sent from the earth for space expeditions run on electricity. The electricity is generated with the help of a generator or is battery-powered. The Apollo mission for the landing of humans on the moon would not have been possible without the use of electricity.
These are the 10 applications of electricity in various fields.
