  • Electronics is like a system of pipes and channels for water:

    -Voltage is your pressure

    -Current is the speed of the water (ft/sec)

    -Watts is gallons per minute

    -wire gauge is the diameter of the pipe

    -Inductors are paddle wheels

    -Capacitors are water towers

    -Resistors are friction plates

    -Diode are check valves

    -batteries are pumps

    Water is something everyone can see and has experience with. Visualizing electronics through this method puts each part in perspective and provide someone without electronic knowledge/experience with a clear understanding, and is most cases intuition, on how the 'circuit' works.

No public wish lists :(
