A waterfall is an area where water drops from a high place. A waterfall usually begins with a stream or river. If the stream or river approaches a steep drop, a waterfall forms. The water moves very quickly over the edge of the drop. It is pulled to the ground by gravity. Waterfalls can be very beautiful and very powerful. The force of the falling water can be used to make electricity. This is known as hydroelectric power, and it is a renewable energy source.
