Scope of the Report
Piezoelectricity is the appearance of an electrical potential (a voltage, in other words) across the sides of a crystal when you subject it to mechanical stress (by squeezing it).Piezoelectricity (pressing electricity) uses crystals to convert mechanical energy into electricity or vice-versa. When pressure is applied to a polarized crystal, it produces a mechanical deformation which in turn results in an electrical charge. Piezoelectric materials are ionically bonded and consist of atoms with positive and negative charges, called ions. These ions occupy positions in specific repeating units, called unit cells.
