Can we generate electricity by using rotation of wheel of a bicycle ?

  • $\begingroup$ How will you cause the wheel to rotate? if this is as you are riding OK, but are you trying to make a generator driven by wind or water or something? $\endgroup$ – user207455 May 6 '19 at 7:56

    $\begingroup$ By pedaling, we can generate electrical energy from mechanical energy. Using Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction, a generator can be created. Decades back, bicycles used to have a light bulb infront of them which glowed when pedaled. $\endgroup$ – Tapi May 6 '19 at 8:59

With a Dynamo that convert part of he mechanical force - the mouvement - into electricity. The Dynamo uses a rotating magnet that create electric current into coils or vice versa. A moving coil around a fixed magnet induce a current into the coil that opposes the mouvement and breaks. Dynamo uses the law of induction of Faraday. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamo https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday%27s_law_of_induction You can buy a Dynamo anywhere in bike shops or in online stores.
