This explains how solar panels work as well, and it is exactly structured as the website that we were supposed to look into before about motors. I seemed to understand more about solar panels from this website, as it is really explanatory and accurate as well.

This sort of tells you how to make a crank generator more powerful. Its a forum where you can post anything so it might not actually be reliable.
