## What is CURRENT– electric current explained, electricity basics

Hey there, guys, Paul here from TheEngineeringMindset.com. In this video, we’re going to be discussing electrical current. We’ll be looking at what is current, the different types of current, how to check the ratings of your electrical devices. As well as how we use safety features to save you from being electrocuted. Current is the […]

## 120V 240V Electricity explained – Split phase 3 wire

– Hey there guys. Paul here from theengineeringmindset.com. In this video we’re going to be learning how three wire split phase electricity supplies work to get 120 and 240 volts. We’ll look at how the electricity gets from the power station over to the property and then how it’s connected around the property and each […]

## Three Phase Electricity Basics and Calculations electrical engineering

Hey there, guys. Paul here from TheEngineeringMindset.com. In this video, we’re going to be learning more about three phase electricity. We’ll cover how three phases are generated, how we get two voltages from a three phase system, what do cycle and hertz mean, where the sine wave comes from, and how to calculate the voltages. […]

## How Electricity Hurts

What happens when a person becomes electrified? Electrical energy flows a little like water flows. You can see a garden hose become pressurized when you open a tap. A power cord gets pressurized with electricity by plugging it in. But electricity is invisible to us. [sound of water dripping] The flow of electricity is measured […]

## ? Basic Electricity – What is voltage?

In my first video about basic electricity, you learned that current is basically the flow of electrons in a wire. And the term Amps or amperes refers to how many electrons are flowing past a certain point per second. In this video I’m going to first tell you what voltage does, then I’m going to […]

## The Metal Melter

I’ve just modified this Microwave Oven Transformer into a dangerous little device. 800 amps of electrical current is about to be bad news for anything made of metal. Today I’m in the mood to melt some metal. This Microwave Oven Transformer used to be a dangerously high-voltage device, but I modified it so the voltage […]

## What is an amp? – Electricity Explained – (2)

This video follows up on my first video on electricity, which you can see by clicking on the card or the link in the description. So, what is an amp? A quick recap: Metals, like copper, have electrons that flow freely throughout the material, from atom to atom, even at room temperatures. And, as explained […]
