Step 2 to make electricity Water is heated and turns to steam (thermal to mechanical)
Step 3 to make electricity Steam moves and turns the turbine (mechanical to mechanical)
Step 4 to make electricity The turbine then turns the generator producing electricity (mechanical to electromagnetic)
Step 5 to make electricity The power lines carry the electricity to houses (electromagnetic)
