Electronics Tutorial

Electronics TutorialYou guys asked for an electronics tutorial and I had a blast making one! In this introductory tutorial I will provide a massive overview while also showing how to build an AM radio on a breadboard.

We’ll learn about electricity, conductors, current, voltage, power, resistors, breadboards, LEDs, semiconductors, Ohm’s law, electromagnetic waves, microphones, carrier waves, ferrite rod antennas, integrated circuits, piezoelectric earphones, variable capacitors and a whole lot more. All the parts and a transcript follow the video below.

If you like videos like this, it would help me greatly if you’d support me on Patreon. I’ll be providing many exclusive videos there such as a Arduino programming tutorial and much more to show my gratitude.
