I am currently doing a Future Learn course called Electrify. It is an introduction to Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
In week 2 we looked at Resistors so my husband was delighted to get out his boxes and tins of resistors to show me.
We did a little exercise to identify some of his collection. I used the colour chart link given on the course, plus a magnifying eyepiece as the little ones are mighty difficult to see.
We then measured the actual resistance of each resistor on an electric meter.
This highlighted the tolerance from the calculated measurement gained from the colour bands.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
