Introduction to Electronics by Earl Gates

By Earl Gates

Obtain the elemental history in electronics had to achieve todays more and more electronic international! The 5th variation keeps to reveal readers to the large box of electronics at a degree that may be simply understood, with all-new info on circuit board fabrication, meeting, and service in addition to useful functions and troubleshooting. colour has been additional to all drawings and photographs that complement the descriptions of significant techniques and strategies, making it even more uncomplicated to grasp simple thought. assurance is split into six sections - DC Circuits, AC Circuits, Semiconductor units, Linear Circuits, electronic Circuits, and now, useful functions - a brand new part supplying hands-on possibilities to use DC/AC rules.

A battery is a combination of two or more cells. There are two basic types of cells. Cells that cannot be recharged are called primary cells. Cells that can be recharged are called secondary cells. An example of a primary cell is a Leclanche cell, also called a dry cell (Figure 3–12). This type FIGURE 3–12 Diagram of a dry cell (shown cut away).

The difference of potential is referred to as electromotive force (emf) or voltage. Voltage is the force that moves the electrons in the circuit. Think of voltage as the pressure or pump that moves the electrons. The symbol E is used in electronics to represent voltage. The unit for measuring voltage is the volt (V), named for Count Alessandro Volta (1745–1827), inventor of the first cell to produce electricity. 8 SECTION 1 DC CIRCUITS FIGURE 1–8 Electrons flow in a circuit because of the difference of potential.

Film resistors have become popular (Figure 4–8) because they offer the small size of the composition resistor with the accuracy of the wirewound resistor. A thin film of carbon or metal alloy is deposited on a cylindrical ceramic core and sealed in an epoxy or glass coating. The value of the resistor is set by cutting a spiral groove through the film, the length of the resistor. The closer the pitch of the spiral, the higher the resistance. 5 megohms at a Ϯ1% tolerance. Metal film resistors are physically similar to carbon film resistors but are less expensive.
