A Little Theory
If you really want to get into theory, libraries, book stores, and electronic stores all have books about basic electronics. But for now, let’s simply take a quick look at four important concepts: voltage, current, resistance, and capacitance.
American schematics; when a resistor value includes a decimal point (i.e., 2.7k, 1.2M), the k or M is inserted where the decimal point would normally appear. Here are some examples of American nomenclature and the metric equivalents…
