There are two basic ways to connect electronic components with two terminals: series and parallel. In this episode, we examine those two types of circuits and show how to calculate equivalent resistance.

Continue reading

Power is the rate of doing work, and for electricity, that means the rate in which energy is converted in a circuit.

Continue reading

Let's look at the resistor and how it affects current and voltage in a circuit. Here's a hint: if you know two of either voltage, current or resistance, you can solve for the third.
