An inductor is just a coil of wire.
It’s incredibly easy to make one — just make some loops with a wire. But because wires create magnetic fields, you’ll soon see that it can do some interesting stuff.
That’s what you’ll learn in this article.
Without a good understanding of basic concepts such as current and voltage, it's going to be hard (or impossible) to understand how different circuits work.
But it doesn't have to be hard. Do *not* confuse basic electronics with "all electronics theory that exist". A lot of books and blogs make this mistake. And it's discouraging for beginners.
Basic electronics is easy.
This page is a library of resources to help you learn the real basics of electronics.
Electric current is what you get when electric charge moves around a circuit. It’s pretty simple when you finally get it. But there are some common pitfalls that can give you the wrong idea when learning. And if you don’t know what current is and how it works, it’s a huge source of confusion when […]
The difference between Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) is simple: AC vs DC comes down to in which direction the current flows. AC is a current that alternates its direction. It goes back and forth continuously. DC is a current that flows in one direction. Current flow in a DC circuit:
