Basic Electronics Resource Library

If you want to learn and build your own inventions with electronics, you need to learn the basics of electronics.

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.

What is Ground in Electronic Circuits?

When you start learning about circuits, you’re bound to ask “what is ground?” at one point or another. Are you actually suppose to connect your circuit into the ground?? First of all: grounding in electronics is different from the earth connection in wall outlets (although they sometimes are connected).

What Is An Inductor?

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.
