EVERYDAY ELECTRONICS LAB COURSE

WELCOME

 

 

Students should visit this page before each lab period. I will prepare introductory comments that will assist you in the lab. Announcements and general information will also appear.

 Here are some animations that might help clarify V, I, R

      Simple battery resistor circuit

      Battery and parallel resistors

      Battery and series resistors

      Ohms Law

Also view these which were obtained from the Elenco website. These animations may help clarify the behavior of components in circuits.
