Passive is used when we are interested in the object instead of the subject. It’s also used when we don’t know who or what the subject is, but we know that the action was made by someone or something; as long as there’s an action and an object a passive sentence can be done.
Sentences using Passive Voice can be commonly seen in scientific material
Object ― Verb to Be + Past Participle ― Subject
To change an Active sentence to a Passive one, the object of the active becomes the subject and the subject of the active becomes the object.
