Types of Electric Current

Electrical current is the flow of charged particles. It is similar to flow of water molecules in a river. Electric current is of two types:

  1. Direct Current (DC)
  2. Alternative Current (AC)

Direct Current: (DC):

In this type of electric current, direction is always same. The electric current generated from a cell or battery is DC. Due to the same direction …

ESD Safe – Electrostatic Discharge Safety

What is ESD?

ESD stands for electrostatic discharge. ESD can be defined as transfer of electric charge between two different objects charged to different electric potentials. This happens when the two object are brought in contact with each other. Electrostatic Discharge can also happen when two objects with different electric potentials due to static induction are brought together either intentionally …

How Electronic / Electrical Circuit Works

Electric charge is nothing but flow of electrons from one object to another. We all know that an atom is made up of electrons, protons and neutrons (look at the diagram on the right that explains the structure of an atom).

Electrons are negatively charged and protons are positively charged while neutrons are neutrally charged. At the same time the …
