Electronics Done Quick 1 | Resistor

Welcome to Electronics Done Quick where I try to explain the most basic components used in electronics as fast and simple as possible.

In this first tutorial , we will talk about one of the most basic electronic component: The resistor! They come in many shapes and forms and by the end of this segment, you'll know (almost) everything you need to know to master the resistor.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://community.robotshop.com/tutorials/show/electronics-done-quick-1-resistor

This is a great initiation to resistors! Thank you Magmator!


Thanks! I can’t wait for you to share you knowledge too, I’ve seen some of your videos on youtube and you seem quite resourceful


Nice magmotor. I should remember some of this from studying for my ham license but I don’t. Nice t have all the info in one place and as a refresher course. I never really had a head for electronics though - electricity has always befuddled me.

Thanks! I’m glad you liked it!

I won’t lie, I had to get back into it lol It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve completed my degree and I’ve lost some of my knowledge along the way.

There’s a guy on Youtube called bigclivedotcom who disassembles everyday stuff and explains how they work, I really suggest watching some of his stuff if you’re curious about electronics: https://www.youtube.com/user/bigclivedotcom/featured

Electronics basics series from GreatScott! is also pretty interesting if you’re a complete beginner: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAROrg3NQn7cyu01HpOv5BWo217XWBZu0

Can someone explain to me why diagrams like these always show current flow from + to -? It is my understanding this is backwards and current flows from negative to positive.
