Overview

Electricity is the flow of electrons. It can be captured in certain liquids and solids.

Power Source

The power source of a circuit supplies electrons and when the electrons are finished it takes the back.

Resistors

Resistors diffuse some of the electric and may have a proper function like a light bulb or a fan. Anything that consumes electricity and gives less back is a resistor. Always have a resistor in your circuits. It there is no resistance the current is 100%. Also, the resistor needs to be big enough.

Capacitors

Capacitors store DC energy and releases it later. Capacitors only store DC and let AC pass though with a little resistance.
