I really really really wish I could but I don't have a credit card nor a PayPal, I love engineering so much so I'm just going to say thank you very much.

It's amazing if someone slows things down and puts it in lamemans terms. 😂😂😉 All of these videos are interesting as I took every thing apart as a child to see how things worked. Pretty knowledgeable now and know how to make something happen just don't know proper names/terms. Been piddleinng and playing with FIRE for 35 years now and LOVE making things work. Sad I don't have a job repairing things or doing things I love.😢😢 Can fix ANYTHING....except a woman. No hope in relationships..they are from Venus men are from Mars. 🤔😕😉

I'm just here to see if he mentions electricity being a hybrid of the dielectric and magnetism. But don't listen to Steinmetz, Faraday, maxwell and Nikola Tesla. They're only literally responsible for 100 percent of our current electric grid. I think you people need to see what a magnet looks like under a Ferocell. The vortices at the center, is beautiful, and never been seen before.

still dont know the difference between amps n volts
Valor 10 days ago
like a waterfall the amount of water before the waterfall is voltage and the water flowing downwards is amps
Valor 10 days ago
you can imagine volt as potential energy and amps as kinetic energy

Eric Amperage. Voltage and amperage are two measures of electrical current or flow of electrons. Voltage is a measure of the pressure that allows electrons to flow, while amperage is a measure of the volume of electrons

But how batteries stock electricity? Anyone know any video. Thanks, this was helpful 😁👍

There is no need to call the Joules. Just call them Volts.

Why does electricity want to go to the ground?
d p

That's a great question! Think of elections as lazy bums; they always want to be at their lowest potential or lowest energy level. So they will go to anything that is more positive than them. That would be the Earth, if a path to it is available. If not, then a human body will do nicely lol

I took a Circuit Analysis class and it was so painful to grasp the concepts of how electricity works. Great professor, but the content was hard to pin down. This was a great video for clearing up misconceptions that I've been having for the longest time, thank you.

This video is missing some crucial information at 2:30. What causes the electrons to flow, well the battery but why?

Awesome! The atomic level really helps my understanding. Nobody has ever tried to explain electricity to me at the atomic level. I love how resistance is described as the "number of electron collisions with other atoms". That is much easier to understand than the text book definition "measure of its opposition to the flow of electric current". Thanks!

thank you now I know so much more about electricity and currents
David Lloyd-Jones
Fun fact: the scale of the molecule is about that of a marble or a ping-pong ball in the middle of a large stadium, that's the nucleus, surrounded by a ver-ree thin cloud, that's the electrons, wafting around the whole of the stadium. Almost everything we consist of is "empty space," i.e. clouds of possibility, but nothing hard or "material."
