The steam from the turbinegoes into the generatorthrough tubes that theturbine spins. In thegenerator, big magnets spinclose to coils of wire :D
When thishappens, anelectrical flow isproduced in thewires.
After the Coal hasbeen through theWires, it makes itsway to your homeand gives itElectricity :D
Firstly, The sun fertilizes the trees andplants so that they can grow. Then theplants die and get compacted. Then in amillion or so years it becomes fossilfuels. It is turned into coal, mined andtaken to a coal factory. Then the coal isburned in a boiler which causes thewater in the boiler pipes to becomesteam.The steam goes through the pipes to theturbine.The steam spins the turbine blades.The spinning blades turn a tubeconnected to the generator.In the generator, big magnets spin closeto coils of wire.When this happens, an electrical flow isproduced in the wires.
