2.4.1 Introduction to Electric circuits

Course subject(s) Module 2: Electricity & magnetism

The physics of electric circuits is a very interesting science, because humans took the knowledge of electricity and made it their own.

We invented electric circuits which were the building blocks for most innovation and technology in the last century. With just a few components, the possibilities of electric circuits have proven to be almost endless. Although circuits might not always look that complex, they are not necessarily intuitive for beginners.

In this unit, we will try to give you some intuition and basic physics that is important to understand for any engineer.
