Re: Electrical Basics

Very informative. I'm very much an electrical novice and this information will very soon come in handy. I know the terms, and I know what to look for when working on wiring, but to have the actual knowledge will help. I look forward to what you have to add further.

Re: Electrical Basics

Looks great, Jim. I like how you explained power and wattage.

I still like to use water analogy to explain voltage and current flow, (especially for current). I think it helps get novices started. Voltage is water pressure, a switch acts like a water valve, smaller wires restrict current like a small hose would, etc.

When I drew up my wiring diagrams and started with the circuit descriptions and introductions, those were the hard parts. You have your work cut out. We're all here to help whenever we can!

Great job! We definitely have the right person on the job here.
I liked your explanations.

Teaching people how read Electrical Diagrams is interesting in which circuits are conventionally read from positive to negative but when you inform them that current flows from negative to positive it seems to blow their fuse - I always save that for last - LOL

Re: Electrical Basics

thanks for posting. I will soon be wiring my car, so I have a lot to learn. I am hoping to do as much of the wiring and interior work myself as possible.
