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.

I'm not a Python guy but that code doesn't do what you say it does. The first comment already picked the derivative created by the following…

CENTER TURN Each wheel rotates in opposite directions, bot turns about it's axis. Theta is the angle to turn in degrees Ep is encoder pulses…

By phase I just meant the wheels were out of sync a sequence of encoder counts; (0,1) (1,1) (1,2) is not indicative of one wheel traveling…

Hey #812, Thanks for chiming in here! I had some fun tweaking the Twist firmware to get better resolution. I'm currently getting about 600…

I've done this with the Arduino, and the parallax boebot encoders with students. They have worse resolution than your encoders (64 per wheel…

I tried the code and it did not work for me. FOR ANYONE ELSE TRYING IT: If you want it to work, in the attachInterrupt, set the third…

Here's a photo of the the wooden key. I'm proud. https://www.dropbox.com/s/nzxsg77x08eytsx/2020-04-06%2015.51.02.jpg?dl=0

Hi! I'm fixing one of these up. Just carved a new key out of wood! But the motor is so noisy! Do you think there's a source for quieter fan…

I remember how hard it was trying to come up with a traffic light model for my science project back in high school.
