    a physics definition will give the best answer, but to answer your question if memory serves right:

    electricity is a general term for electrical phenomena - 2 branches electrodynamics and electrostatics. As for the second part to your question energy in any form cannot be destroyed, i.e., converted to heat.

    In other words, if you teach your cat to bark (output) and eat dog food (input) that doesn't make him a dog. It would have to chase cars, chew bones, and have puppies before I'd call it Rover ;-)
