    Wow! So helpful!

    Thankyou math tutor . However your presentations lack one key component . The math and principles are great but if you could show something in show tell version of these circuits this could the value of your tutor skills . Just to demonstrate the stick and line methods works to some degree . But as a visual learner a piece of apparatus of the objective is needed to improve my understanding that you claim to build . Design is one thing but to present the real world product , more beneficial to any person and whom you are employed to if you hope to make a marketable salable product .

    Amazing Video! ⭐ Question: From time 11:17 -15:01, video inserts 7V in equation solving for resistance. My limited knowledge tells me to insert 9V, not 7V. Why 7V??….. 🙂 Thank you.

  11. Mabitso Sebatane on November 22, 2021 at 9:55 am

    I love the way you explain everything. ive always worked on computers and main boards, but its nice knowing whats going on at the physics level. thanks for the video.

    If you is interested in electronics the best success that ive ever had was with the Gregs Electro Blog (just google it) definately the best course that I’ve tried.

    "Conventional current" confuses many beginners. Long ago somebody (Ben Franklin) guessed that current flow was from positive particles going from the positive terminal to the negative. That is how "conventional" current got defined. He had a 50-50 chance of getting it right, and got it wrong. The existence of electrons, the ACTUAL charge carriers, was not known. So this definition stuck – at least for engineering types. But it doesn’t matter for computational purposes. You can imagine that as many "positive" particles (even though they don’t exist) travel positive to negative as "negative" particles (electrons) go from negative to positive. You can actually do all of the same mathematics with either, there is just a change in sign. Technicians, as opposed to engineers, may be more prone to think in terms of electron flow or "electron current". So while it may be confusing, for mathematical purposes, you can consider there are two equal, and opposite, currents at the same time. And you can think in terms of whichever you are most comfortable with.

    Hi can you tell me which software you use as a blackboard please

  22. Pepehimovic on November 22, 2021 at 10:07 am

    For the explanation that starts around 28:21, what happens when both paths have exactly the same resistance? Will it follow both paths?

    Also, if electrons only flow through the path of least resistance, how do parallel circuits exist?

  33. Sports on November 22, 2021 at 10:23 am

    I dont know why electron flow paralel curit is R decrease if have a lot of resistor in paralel circuit R=0 ? 🙂

  34. Angel Rotoni on November 22, 2021 at 10:23 am

    thank you so muchI

  35. Pepehimovic on November 22, 2021 at 10:24 am

    I think @20:24 is wrong. The voltage drop of the entire circuit is still 9V, so to find the current in the circuit you’d divide 9V by 10,250 Ohms + resistance of the lightbulb (which we don’t know but it should be negligible anyway). Why should the method you explained be correct?

    An important point for anyone not understanding the fundamental "what actually *is* voltage/current":

    A rough concept to consider is how electricity is being transmitted.
    Electrons loosely speaking are responsible for electricity.
    A coulomb is a measure of electrical charge.
    A couloumb represents a number of electrons, regardless of their state. This is charge. The number isn’t immediately important. It’s a big number.

    Electrons aren’t "consumed"; they have a level of energy at which they’ve been excited, and transmit this energy to power things.

    Energy is measured in Joules. The same joules in any other form of measurement of energy, e.g. chemical energy.

    So if each electron is holding a certain number of joules, and a multitude of electrons make up a coulomb, we can state how much energy is contained in this collection of electrons as the number of Joules per Coulomb. "Joules per coulomb" is the same as "Volts".
    V = J/C = Joules per Coulomb.

    Current is the "rate of flow of charge".
    As previously mentioned, charge is measured in coulombs. It gives the number of coulombs passing a point per in a circuit per second, regardless of how many joules possesed by those coulombs.
    I = C/s = coulombs per second.

    So with this in mind, power (Joules per second, measured in Watts), can be found by muliplying the two measurements together.
    The fractions cancel out:
    J/C x C/s = J/s = Watts!

    This explains why voltage goes down across a component, e.g. lightbulb, as Joules are being taken from the electrons/coulombs and are being converted to light!

    Hey everyone, the best success that i’ve had was by using the Gregs Electro Blog (just google it) definately the most useful info i’ve tried.

    This is Great!

  44. Sagar Sagar on November 22, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Analogy
    On windy day , watchmen hold the door of your house and push against the wind but he can resist only as per his capability which leaves gap for wind to flow. 😉

    Wind is current.
    Watchmen is resistance.
    If you want to increase wind flow through door you use less resistance capability watchmen..may be more older watchmen 😂

  45. David Krane on November 22, 2021 at 10:34 am

    SMT spoiled the fun. The parts r so small, u can’t even see what you’re doing. Even reading what’s written on the pcbs is difficult to see.
