The term 'electricity' refers to the presence and flow of an electric charge. The most common form is that which is used to power appliances, machines and devices by the flow of electrons through conductors such as copper wires.

Static electricity refers to electric charges that are static and not moving, while an electric current is created when charges are dynamic and moving.
