Learn about electric charge, current, and how they relate.
A clear comprehension of the most basic building blocks in the art and science that is Electrical Engineering paves the road toward a solid Engineering productive life. Here are the building blocks, ideal resistors, inductors, capacitors and sources. It is important that the student realizes that every device he/she'll encounter has resistance, inductance and capacitance AT THE SAME TIME!
In this lecture, we will cover the following: - Voltage, Current, and Power. - Circuit Schematic and Ideal Basic Circuit Elements. - Independent and Dependent Voltage and Current Sources. - Ohm's Law or the Electrical Resistance. - Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL). - Solving examples and problems containing dependent and independent sources. Please note that in problem 1 on slide 29, the 3 Ohm resistor should be 5 Ohms. More information provided on my website: http://users.encs.concordia.ca/~s_esma/
Maker 101 is geared towards people who are just getting started in making and DIY. This the idea of an electrical circuit is scary? It's a lot like plumbing. We talk about the hydraulic analogy. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2
A simple explanation on how an electrical circuit operates.
