And, this resistance changes electrical energy into another form of energy - heat, light, motion. Resistance is measured in ohms. A special meter, called an .   The book is a good start for beginners who love to design creative electronic projects and contents that the getting started in electronics book has: Makes you learn about static electricity with magnets and solenoids.   Although many below have said it is a good choice, The Art of Electronics is not a book on electricity - its a book on serious electronics design. That means that its not a good learning tool to start with, as you will spend so much time wondering.

But, what is electricity really? Let’s start with three very basic concepts of electricity: namely, electric charge, electric current, and electric circuit. Electric charge refers to a fundamental property of matter that even physicists don’t totally understand. Suffice it to say that two of the tiny particles that make up atoms — protons and electrons — are the bearers of electric charge. From a simplified explanation of the electronic to AC/DC machinery, alternators and other advanced topics, "Basic Electricity" is the complete course for mastering the fundamentals of electricity. The authors have provided a clear understanding of how electricity is produced, measured, controlled, and used. A minimum of mathematics is used for the direct explanations of primary cells 5/5(5).   good books - good question - have not found any that i would call 'good bed time reading'. However another must is the On Site Giude - full of lots of very usful info. Yhe ECA have a book out 'A Guide to the 17th ed of the wiring regs - well laid out easy to read and some pretty nice pics (not quite to Razzles standards).   This book is a perfect starting point for beginners to start their journey to learn auto mechanic and anyone who wants to know more about how cars work and how to fix them. In this book you’ll learn to: replace spark plugs, tires, air filters, add and change coolant, find and fix leaks, inspect and replace brakes and many more other components.

For the following concepts please also consult the course book “Physical Computing” (O’Sullivan/Igoe) chapter 1 (pp. ) for a more detailed description of the basics of electricity. The electric power companies have enormous generators driven by steam or water pressure to produce electricity for your home. The voltage, expressed in volts (V, and named after Alessandro Volta who invented the battery in ), is a measure of how strong the electric charge from your battery or generator is, similar to the water pressure. 2 days ago  1.
