This lesson gave me a good understanding on how electronics work and the power behind it.
“My mentor explained how resistance works and gave me great examples on how traffic signs and lights are like resistors that control the flow of traffic. Just like in wires and how much voltage is running through it, you don’t want to overheat or short circuit a device so the right amount of resistance in the electrical current gives control of how much power is needed going to the device plugged in. When I started this chapter on my own it was kind of confusing but when I went in for my lesson and my mentor started to explain things better my understanding of it increased.”
