    Resistance and Ohms Law.

    I promised just a little math, unfortunately you do need some, and the most important math to our projects is included here.

    I will also put some links below so you can order parts for our first couple of labs.

    No I do not work for allelectronics.com, I just use them for myself because they are not that expensive. Feel free to purchase from your favorite place.

    Also feel free to buy more of the each of the parts, I am only including enough for the first couple of labs, plus a few extras in case you burn out a part

    Hello Scotty. Your video on transistors is excellent. I now get it. After having read books and seen other videos, your simple explanation worked where the others didn't. Thank you! Are you going to make any more videos? Did you build a sonic walking stick? Regards, Nick
