Poor education! - Electricity miconceptions.

I came across this article "ELECTRICITY" MISCONCEPTIONS IN K-6 TEXTBOOKS - - -William J. Beaty

It reminded me of my  school days (7-8th standard), i had a long discussion about electricity with my father. Which led to realize that, a lot of things in my physics book were not really the way they appeared at first sight.
Especially i remember my great revelation about concept of elasticity.... and a fact that i determined on my own later that day (i am quite proud of that till this day) that a steal ball is actually _more_ elastic than rubber ball. A concept that many haven't grasped even with their phd's in place.

Worth a read if you want to know a thing or two about electricity. i am sure many of you will be surprised at how wrong you are when you call yourself educated :)
