i have an idea of generating electricity by the muscular energy of bulls(ox).bulls are capable of carrying 3000 kilo grams of weight to 35 to 40 kilo meters a day,it means electricity produced by each ox(bull) will be equal to run 10 cars of 300 kg to 35to40 kilo meters according to newtons third law of motion.
this idea may not be suitable for western nations, but in countries like India and china most of the population is farmers and each farmer will be having a pair of ox or bulls
by which they can produce electricity.

The electricity produced by living organisms, with a few exceptions, is on the order of microvolts. It has nothing to do with Newton's laws of motion.

When they tested my heart with an electrocardiogram they put electrodes on my toes. How does heart electricity effect my toes? And why is it necessary to be measured on my feet? Anybody know?
