Note that when I discuss taking voltage and current measurements, I provide pictures showing the breadboard circuit. You can read more about constructing circuits in Chapter 15. Building the circuit with alligator clips Use the alligator clips to make connections in the circuit, as shown in Figure 3-7. Note that the orientation of the resistor doesn’t matter, but the orientation of the LED does matter. You connect the longer lead of the LED Chapter 3: Running Around in Circuits to the resistor, and the shorter lead of the LED to the negative side (black wire) of your battery pack.
The higher the water pressure, the stronger the push. The higher the voltage, the stronger the electric current that flows through a conductor. Why voltage needs to be different A voltage is simply a difference in electrical charge between two points. In a battery, negatively charged atoms (atoms with an abundance of electrons) build up on one of two metal plates, and positively charged atoms (atoms with a dearth of electrons) build up on the other metal plate, creating a voltage across the plates.
Diodes are used to restrict current flow in one direction, much like valves, while transistors are versatile components that can be used to switch circuits on and off, or amplify current. Integrated circuits (ICs) contain multiple discrete (that is, individual) components in a single package and are able to control current in many ways, depending on the particular IC. Sensors, switches, and other parts also play important roles in circuits. In Chapters 3 through 12, you find out how these different electronic components manipulate current and work together to make useful things happen.
