Video of the Day: Piezoelectric Effect

Good Thursday morning to everyone out there, today we’re looking at the piezoelectric effect. Now you may not be familiar with the piezoelectric effect so basically when a mechanical force (think hitting it with a hammer) is applied to certain materials then an electric charge is produced. It is a rather interesting phenomenon but it is more commonly used than you might think. Over on the Keystone Science youtube channel we get a little demonstration of the piezoelectric effect in action. If you’d like to learn more there are some books on the subject of the piezoelectric effect. So check out this quick video and gain some knowledge.
