How is Electricity Generated & How LEDs Work


I don't know about you, but I love these explainer videos - especially when they do a better job than my university professors (yes, I have a degree in physics and this video cleared some things up ;-).

How does electricity even do stuff? We know it powers everything around us, but what are the mechanics behind it doing something like- producing light? In this episode, we explore how Lemon Batteries produce electricity, and then how we can use that electricity with an LED to generate light! Let's dive into some of the fundamentals around electricity, and learn something fascinating today.

Animating chemical reactions accurately is kinda tough! It's hard to show a lot of atoms reacting together, and I feel like I could have done it better. If you have any thoughts on it, feel free to share.

I am an engineer that wants to get others excited about engineering as well. I worked 8 years as an electrical and mechanical engineer on subsystems in machines that make microchips, specifically on Ion Implanters. I want to inspire others to get into engineering, so I decided to learn Blender. Eventually, I left my engineering job so I could make high-quality educational engineering videos for YouTube. My hobbies are: cooking, inner tube water polo, frisbee, and lindy hop dancing.
