# Does electricity have weight?

The scientific definition of electricity is that it is measured in Coulombs. An “Electric Current” is a flow of electricity. Electricity is equal to charge.

Here’s a more popular and non-scientific definition of electricity: Quantity of electricity isn’t measured in colombs. Instead, it’s measured as Joules or KWh. Electricity is electromagnetic energy. “Electricity” is composed of electric and magnetic fields.

Another non-scientific definition is that electricity quantity can be measured in Watts. What is the Watts of electricity? In this case, electricity is the “rate of energy flow.”

Another is that “electricity” doesn’t have any quantity because electricity is both a class and a science field. There is also no quantity in Biology. We can’t have rainwater but not enough Weather. In this case, the flashlight *IS* electricity and the transistor is electronics.

What do you mean by “electricity?” According to the scientific definition of electricity, it is not an energy source. This means that electricity is only transmitted through power lines and never reaches your home. This also means that lightning or sparks are not electricity. They’re not examples Coulomb quantities.

Is a coulomb made of electricity weighty? Yes, and no. The atoms’ protons have about half the mass of the coulombs. The neutrons make up the remaining half. However, protons don’t have pure electricity. Electrons are closer than “pure electrons”, although they are not quite there. The electrons within a material are about 1/2000 of the protons’ weight, which means that they account for approximately 1/4000th of all objects such as wires or batteries. The wire’s “electricity” doesn’t weigh as much as the rest of the wire. It is lighter than feathers, styrofoam, or soap-suds. The electricity stops when the current drops to zero. Electricity can be thought of as a belt that can move or stop. However, the wire’s weight remains the same.

However, we can claim that electricity, which is not measured in coulombs, is a form energy if we disregard the scientific definition. To calculate the weight, we use the mass-energy equation (e=mc2). One joule of energy is equal to 1.11×10-17 kilograms. It is very small. A capacitor that contains one joule of energy will be slightly heavier than a charged capacitor. One gram of “electricity”, or EM energy, is equal to 25,000 megawatt-hours. This energy comes from a 22 kiloton nuclear blast.
