Electricity is a form of energy called electrical energy. It is sometimes called an "unseen" force because the energy itself cannot be seen, heard, touched, or smelled.

However, the effects of electricity can be seen ... a lamp gives off light; a motor turns; a cigarette lighter gets red hot; a buzzer makes noise.

The effects of electricity can also be heard, felt, and smelled. A loud crack of lightning is easily heard, while a fuse "blowing" may sound like a soft "pop" or "snap." With electricity flowing through them, some insulated wires may feel "warm" and bare wires may produce a "tingling" or, worse, quite a "shock." And, of course, the odor of burned wire insulation is easily smelled.
