Transistors and LEDs have revolutionized our modern world. Transistors have made fast and small computers possible. In this lesson, we will learn to use the transistor as a switch.
A capacitor is much like a battery. It stores current and releases that current when a circuit is closed. They don’t store as much current as a battery. Capacitors are reliable and don’t need to be replaced like batteries.
Buttons and switches are used to complete circuits in electronic components. Tindercad has buttons and switches to close circuits in our simulated electronic projects.
TinkerCAD has a circuit development environment along with a simulator. The components are similar to actual components. This allows us to teach basic electricity and electronics concepts.
