Characteristics of a Transistor

Characteristics of a Transistor A transistor is a semiconductor device which is used to switch or amplify electronic signals and electric power. It consists of semiconductor material mostly with at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. Transistor characteristics are the plots which represent the relationships between the current and the voltages of a transistor Read more about Characteristics of a Transistor[…]

Applications of Parallel Plate Capacitors (1)

Applications of Parallel Plate Capacitors

Applications of Parallel Plate Capacitors When capacitors are connected in parallel, the total capacitance is the sum of the individual capacitor’s capacitances. If two or more capacitors are connected in parallel, the overall effect is that of a single equivalent capacitor having the sum total of the plate areas of the individual capacitors. As we’ve Read more about Applications of Parallel Plate Capacitors[…]

Electrical Analogy for Thermal Conduction

Electrical Analogy for Thermal Conduction Thermal Conductivity is defined as the quantity of heat (Q) transmitted through a unit thickness (l) in a direction normal to a surface of unit area due to a unit temperature gradient (ΔT) under steady state condition and when the heat transfer is dependent only on the temperature gradient. From Read more about Electrical Analogy for Thermal Conduction[…]

Basic Properties of Electric Charge

Basic Properties of Electric Charge Electric charge is defined as the amount of energy or electrons passing from one body to another either by conduction, induction or other specific methods. There are two types of electric charges namely Positive Charge and Negative Charges.  Charges are present in almost everybody and those bodies which don’t have Read more about Basic Properties of Electric Charge[…]
