Beginner's Electronics Course

Part 1. Ohm’s law and Watt’s law

This class will teach the basics of voltage, current, and power. A lab will be included that will demonstrate how to calculate the proper value of resistor to connect LEDs to power.

Parts and equipment may be borrowed from the hackerspace.

or

We can sell you a multimeter (http://www.harborfreight.com/7-function-digital-multimeter-92020.html), a few LEDs, a few resistors, clip leads, and a 9V battery for $5.

Alternatively, you can bring your own (LEDs, 9V battery, clip leads, assortment of resistors [150,470,1k, 1.5k, 3.3k,4.7k,6.8k,10k], multimeter)

I have 14 meters available and about that many sets of parts.

So far I think about 5-6 have requested them.

**Monetary Donations to Baltimore Hackerspace are Appreciated**

    Thank you for the great course. I have no background in math or engineering and everyone was very helpful in getting me started.

    For those of you who have not visited Baltimore Hackerspace. If you are using GPS make sure you type Baltimore Hackerspace instead of our address or use Bing Maps to find us because google maps has us on the opposite side of the business park.

    I talked with Chris and this is what he said: "For $5 I will sell you the multimeter and parts at the space. I need an idea of now many sets that I need"

    So if you need parts please comment here and let Chris know that you will want parts.
