All About Circuits is a comprehensive electronics industry website, featuring a free six-volume online textbook about electronic circuits. Volume Six is devoted to projects and experiments, tied closely to the material in the preceding volumes. HacDC members have begun a joint seminar project to work through these projects in HacDC’s workspace, one by one, in the order they appear in the textbook. Anyone interested in participating in these learn-by-doing exercises is welcome to join in.
The first “All About Circuits” seminar was held on February 10, where we completed the “Voltmeter Usage” and “Ohmmeter Usage” experiments in the book. On Monday, February 17, we will move on to “A Very Simple Circuit,” “How to Use an Ammeter to Measure Current,” and (time permitting) “Ohm’s Law” and “Nonlinear Resistance.”
The session will run from 7:00-8:30pm. If we don’t finish the experiments mentioned here, we will pick up where we left off the following week.
Parts and equipment to complete at least one copy of each experiment will be provided at the space. If you would like to bring your own multimeter or other equipment you are welcome to do so.
