Introduction: How Electricity & Electronics Work: All You Need to Know Guide to Getting Started

Have you started a project, and found that you will need knowledge of how electricity works, and practical circuit design? Or you are involved with a science project and plan on demonstrating electricity and electronics? Then you have found the right place! To start things off, we will cover the basics of Volts, Ohms, Amps, and Watts, so you have the background of how electricity works! (Below is the the video I have created to cover the topic.)

Step 1: Lets Start With Volts, Ohms, Amps, and Watts!

Step 2: Basic, Series and Parallel Circuits

So now we know the basics of how electricity works, and why it does what it does, lets start looking at some more complicated wiring schemes. No worries, it is not that difficult!

Step 3: Thats It! (for Now, Anyways!)

That about does it. In future episodes, I may make a video on topics about capacitors, inductors, transistors, impedance matching, etc etc etc. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments! However, due to time constraints, other projects in the works (such as by quadcopter build), and collage, as well as a non-comprehensive understanding of the topics mentioned above, I have not been able to make more tutorial Tuesdays!

As for now, I will leave you with a challenge: Try to reverse engineer the functioning of the schematics posted. Can you figure out what they do and how they work? Good luck!
