Introduction: A Capacitor is a two-terminal electrical component. Just like a resistor, it’s one of the fundamental passive components we often use when building electrical/electronic circuits. It is very hard to find a circuit without a capacitor on it. Capacitors are special components because of their capability to store energy just like a fully charged […]

Electricity and how it works: Electricity Basics: Electricity is a natural phenomenon that occurs throughout nature and it takes different forms but for purposes of this tutorial, we’ll only concentrate on current electricity i.e. what powers our gadgets. The goal here is to understand how electricity flows from a power source through wires, spinning motors, […]
