Light Dependent Resistor (LDR)

LDR is a special kind of resistance, which varies according to the light falling on it.

An LDR is a kind of light sensor and is also called photoresistor. It is made up of photo resistive material Cadmium Sulphide.
LDR’s resistance varies [..]

Resistor : Value Reading

We learnt some facts about Resistors in the previous blog. Now let us learn about the trick to read their value.

Some resistors are large enough to have their value printed on them. However, most of them are too small in size to have their value printed on them. Therefore, a system of colour-coding is adopted to indicate their value.[..]

RESISTANCE : A friendly foe

Resistor is one of the passive components used in electronic circuits.

It is used to limit the flow of current in a circuit. It’s main aim is to resists the flow of electricity.
Resistance can be compared to friction. As we know,[..]

CURRENT – Different Types and Properties

In the last blog, we learnt about current and voltage. Now, let us learn and discuss different types of current. We know that the flow of electrons constitutes current and voltage is the electric force that causes flow of electrons. For flow of current, electrons must be moving regularly.

Knowing about VOLTAGE

We have read about current in the previous blog. As we know, flow of electrons in one direction is called electric current. The driving force behind the current is voltage. Let’s consider different examples from day to day life to understand the concept of voltage....
