Hi, I've got a question, I recently got interested in piezoelectricity. I almost no nothing about it tho. From the wiki artcile I gathered that when a force acts upon a piezoelectric material and deforms its shape, an electrical potential is created. I know that it has many applications in electronics, medicine, ect... but how does it work? I was thinking about a couple of crystal compounds from the wiki, and i thought perhaps a lewis-dot-structure might help. Am I on the right track in saying that an outide force causes a distortion which makes the individual molecules' intermolecular forces interact?
