Electromagnets and how they work

The electromagnet was invented by a man named William Sturgeon in 1825. This was the beginning of using electrical energy for making useful and controllable machinery and laid the foundations for large-scale electronic communications. An electromagnet is basically a coil of wire wrapped around a cove that electricity is sent through. As the electricity flows though the wire it stirs up it's electrons creating a magnetic field.

Ugh, enough already!
