Thank you for explaining so clearly Reply June 25, 2019 at 5:33 am I know it's a habit to say current flows, but in actuality current conducts. I think the term flow comes from the water annology which is a easy way to look at it in terms of electricity. It simply conducts what's already there, passing on its electrons from atom to atom. Reply June 25, 2019 at 11:58 pm Wow …What an excellent teacher – love you – more please Reply June 26, 2019 at 8:29 am Amazing tutorial.

I have a small 4-inch, 7000 ma fan from a treadmill console.Looks to me to have a very small, orange-brown, American football shaped capacitor. It is wired between the two terminals, and one terminal is marked "+".Any thoughts on its size and type?Thanks.

This is a very good natured person who loves his subject matter and joyfully teaches it to others. 🙂 Reply July 2, 2019 at 6:07 am Thanks for the review,on capacitors I was taught that as it charged the electrons in the dielectric formed an eliptical orbit around the nucleus pushed by the voltage.

Keep up the good work. Reply July 3, 2019 at 11:05 pm If I want to hook a 12V battery to a single LED, I attach a resistor to thd LED to drop the volts down, but if I have it attached to an on and off switch also, do I need a transistor?

Reply July 9, 2019 at 4:58 pm Nano Farts? Had to rewind it a few times to know what he was saying. Great vid. Reply July 10, 2019 at 10:45 am When resistor is connected .is it the voltage or current is limited? Reply July 11, 2019 at 5:02 pm Very nice video and good explanation of the basic workings of the components. You have a nice calm voice and your videos are always nice to watch. Reply July 13, 2019 at 5:07 pm Lol the best way to remember the color code value is to learn the rainbow and the chakra system should be obvious other than those racist (rude) phrases Reply July 14, 2019 at 1:03 am Since this is an into video, you should tell people what a micro-farad[sp] is. I'd also trim down the inner workings of the components. At this stage, the basic function is all that's needed. Reply July 14, 2019 at 3:16 am Very useful video,it’s really help me understand the parts.thanks a lots Reply July 15, 2019 at 8:54 pm Everyone saying wow this is 40 mins. But I’ve learnt much more in this 40 minutes than 2x 80 minute lectures at school. Reply July 18, 2019 at 7:40 pm My problem with the water analogy is that with a squeezed part of the pipe, this would imply it increase the pressure and thus voltage. I would model it was a squeeze with a hole in the pipe too so that the voltage stays roughly the same, and the flow, or current still decreases.

Could advise on using MKPH SH capacitor in an AC circuit.? Reply July 25, 2019 at 10:07 am This vid was truly excellent and explained beautifully for beginners like myself Reply July 25, 2019 at 3:33 pm The try and fail is very important to learn and one of the best ways to learn something. Screw up and then figure out where you screwed up and see if you can fix it. The other best way to learn is via an apprenticeship where you work under someone and learn from them. Then after your through with the day you can come home and do your own trial and error. The absolute 2 best learning methods. Reply July 27, 2019 at 12:29 pm You are a gifted teacher. Thanks man! Reply July 29, 2019 at 10:59 pm Color code……… Bad Boys Rape Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly……. of course you can't say that today because it's Politically Incorrect LOL. Reply July 30, 2019 at 6:14 pm On smd resistors (and capacitors) it would be written in numbers, but with same logic as with colors, so for eg: 103 => 10 with 3 more zeros => 10000 ohms (10KΩ ). For capacitors it would be the value in picofarads, so 104 would mean, 10 with 4 zeros, 100000pF (which equals 100nF).

I wish I had a teacher like you back then. You make this all very clear, concise, and simply informative. Amazing video! Reply August 13, 2019 at 8:55 pm So… basically, making a circuit board just about balancing all components towards a use goal while satisfying the given conditions of Voltage, Current and Power. Reply August 14, 2019 at 5:44 am So about the illustration of the water pipe pressure and flow of water applying to resistance and the flow of electricity… would this concept apply to gas and air flow as well? Reply August 15, 2019 at 9:35 am Very good concept i like it, its help also for my YouTube channel. My channel it's more hospital equipment troubleshooting. If you have time check my channel.

Reply August 20, 2019 at 2:37 pm Hello Reply August 20, 2019 at 9:16 pm Paip=pipe Reply August 21, 2019 at 12:07 pm you don't need mnemonic to memorized something like this,that is so lazy, one should use spatial/ visual memory, yeah the one you use for the alphabet and numbers,each color it already in order with the exception of gray, gray should have been in either 5 or 6th position, instead gray was placed in the 8th position.0 = black = no color or energy1= brown= color in between black and red if you were to combine them2=red3=orange=color in between red and yellow if you were to combine them4= yellow=5=green= color in between yellow and blue if you were to combine them6= blue (cyan)=7= purple=8= gray= should have been 5 or 6 since it 50% the between black and white (50% Red, 50%green, 50%blue hue when combine)9=white= full or combine energy this encodes better in your memory and it becomes permanently fix and fast to identify.I learn this when I was 15yrs , it been 28yrs since and still remember this as if it was yesterday Reply August 21, 2019 at 12:35 pm Thanks for sharing the simple guide to electronic component .its help me understand the function of resistors , capacitors. diodes and transistors .

Tubes are usually not a failed component on old equipment. As far as understanding electronics, I have not learned much more since the 1960s but the industry has sure changed!! I remember reading then how LEDs would one day replace Incandescent Bulbs. I thought: Crazy!!! Now we are there!! The average person would be stunned how many transistors are in a smart phone. Especially if you think of the transistor size in the period when I first handled one. Reply August 22, 2019 at 4:09 pm What is trending on YouTube: Gaming, music, movies………. What it should be (in my words) : IC chips, transistors, resistors, diodes, PCBs, computers, microprocessors, microcontrollers, …………………… And also everything related to creativity (I don't like arts) Reply August 23, 2019 at 3:52 am SIR, I would like to tell you that this is the MOST INFORMATIVE, MOST INTERESTING AND MOST KNOWLEDGABLE video I have EVER seen on youtube, you are a VERY SMART MAN,, I'm teaching myself the componets of circuit boards and this is perfect for me to learn all the componets. THANK YOU for doing this for beginners like myself,, WELL DONE Reply August 23, 2019 at 3:44 pm So I'm 60% ready for making my own circuit after watching this video. Thanks for this! 👍 Reply August 24, 2019 at 1:09 pm I bought a couple of LED bulbs that have a photo resistor, that I want to cancel. I want the light to still turn on in sunlight. I looked for the resistor to cover with tape. I couldn't find any of the obvious components with a zigzag line. How do other photo resistors look? Google photos just shows the ones with the zigzag line Reply August 24, 2019 at 3:12 pm What's the best way to reduce a 48 volt e-bike battery down to 36 volts? The batteries are generally 10 to 20 amp hours, but the current is usually 15 amps. So the bike can operate anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes depending on the size of the battery. Reply August 24, 2019 at 10:02 pm Very interesting and humorous video. Maybe another one covering inductors (wind a coil ?) apply a source and watch a small compass swing…low voltage transformers (IF type ?) in a little circuit to show coupling of different elements… Reply August 26, 2019 at 1:06 am "Vertical" = like a "virgin" having sex (standing up)"Horizontal" = like a "whore" having sex (laying down) same as horizon. Reply August 26, 2019 at 1:41 am What is "IN SHA Lation"? Also, I'm watching part about caps and I'm finding that I'm very frustrated firstly that you keep saying "in sha lation", but secondly, the fact that you didn't bother to explain firstly what capacitance is. I think that would have been very helpful for someone who knows basically nothing to begin with. You're cutting your little example over and over, and stating and showing that it changes the capacitance each time, but, so what? What does that mean? You get what I'm trying to say. Thanks.

I used this to try and educate myself on a repair that i am working on. As i understand, the voltage portion of a copacitor rating is the amount of protection from the amount of voltage indicated? I bought a 1.0/630v when i need a 1.0/35v I am assuming this is to great of a difference. Reply September 13, 2019 at 4:15 pm I like 'Every good boy deserves football' doesn’t help me remember the resistor colour code though 🙂 Reply September 13, 2019 at 4:42 pm Help! i need an equivalent to this IC MC34063A which one do i go for? Reply September 14, 2019 at 8:32 pm Perhaps the reason Cathode is abbreviated with a K is because Cathode comes from the greek word "κάθοδος" whitch starts with a K meaning going down.
