Top Pick for Kids
How does the circuit work?
The black wire connects to the yellow wire, which connects to the short prong on the LED, which connects to the long prong on the LED, which connects to the E11 side of the resistor, which connects to the top bus 21, which connects to the red wire, which connects to the battery, therefore completing the circuit.
Sharing Current Explained
When all the wires were plugged in the LED showed a weak square. When I unplugged the yellow negative wire the LED showed a strong line. This means that when the power is shared it is weaker, and when its not shared its stronger.
What is the bus part of the breadboard?
The bus has to sides, the bottom and the top. The top bus holes are connected to any other holes in the top bus, and the bottom bus holes are connected to all other bottom bus holes. The top and bottom bus holes do not connect.
What is the terminal strip of the breadboard?
The terminal strip 20 connects the top column of 20's from A - E. The bottom terminal strip 20 connects the bottom column of 20's from F - J.
