    Electronics Fundamentals: Understanding Capacitors

    Seems many here need basic electronics for DIY projects.

    Here is a website with lots of that info. I shop there and have no pecuniary interests.

    Electronics Fundamentals: Understanding Capacitors

    Btw Jameco is a legitimate company... The Electrical Engineering group at work orders stuff from them all the time (as well as from Grainger, Digikey, etc).

    I have no ties to them, just pointing out they are legit and well-known in industry.

    This is another good supplier for tiny cheap electronics. They teach how to program and use micro controllers/computers. Watch their videos.

    Capacitors? A TV repair neighbor (old-time CRT/tube TV) once told me, "Its not dangerous if you keep one hand in your back pocket."

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Not many are repairing old CRT. I have "restored" a couple nice wood cabinet TV's by throwing out the old guts. I save the tubes and put a cheap LED TV inside. Faux fool

    Re: Electronics Fundamentals: Understanding Capacitors

    Can't recall the coding of capacitors but for resistors it's Bad Beer Ruts Our Young Guts But Vodka Goes Well. (Black 0 - Brown 1- Red 2 - Orange 3 - Yellow 4- Green5 -Blue 6 -Violet 7- Gray 8 - White9 ) There are some vulgar sayings for this too that I won't repeat here but can be found here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...code_mnemonics.
