Magnetism and electricity are connected in a way


that is very useful to people. Magnetic fields can be
used to generate electric _________________ and
electric currents can be used to generate
_________________ fields. This connection
between magnets and electricity is called
_________________. How does this work? As
Hydroelectric generators convert
a_________________ of wire spins in a magnetic
the kinetic energy of water
flowing downhill into electricity. _________________, a current flows through it.

A device that uses a coil of spinning wires in a magnetic field to make electricity is
called a _________________. A _________________ power plant, for
example, uses the energy of flowing water to generate electricity. As water flows
from a high place to a low place, it pushes on _________________ blades
causing them to spin. Coils of wire are attached to the spinning turbine and
placed next to magnets. As the coil _________________ in the magnetic field,
electric current flows through the wires. In short, the _________________
energy of water is transformed into electrical energy.
This process can be reversed to produce an electric _________________. An
electric current through a coil of wires in a magnetic field will cause the coil to
start spinning. This coil is attached to an axle, which can be used to move
something else such as a wheel or a blade. _________________ and toy cars
are examples of devices that use an electric motor to generate motion.
