Energy doesn’t FLOW the way you THINK! (Electrodynamics)

How does alternating current even work if the charges never go anywhere? The answer to this question rearranged all my intuitions about circuits. Prepare for a mind blow. This episode was made possible by generous supporters on Patreon. Hey Crazies. One thing you cannot do is confuse the motion of charge with the motion of […]

TOBY 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi- [THUNDER] TOBY Wow! Must be close! PIDGE Who? TOBY The Lightning! PIDGE Lightning? TOBY Yeah that big light in the sky! PIDGE The sun! TOBY No, not this time. The lightning was that big flash just now. PIDGE Did someone take our picture? TOBY They should, we look […]

What Is Electricity? (Are You Gonna Be My Girl?)

Go!! 1,2,3 a song about ‘lectricty because it powers our lives, makes it possible for us to thrive because it powers our lives, makes it possible for us to thrive Oh, 4, 5, 6, volts of potential difference makes electrons go round if the circuit is complete and sound Circuit’s closed Voltage There Current Flows […]

Does Electricity REALLY Flow? (Electrodynamics)

This episode was made possible by generous supporters on Patreon. Hey Crazies. Welcome to part three of our series on electrodynamics! In part two, I made the following comment: We usually have a bunch of charges moving together in something we call a current. Hmm, I think that deserves a little more attention. If you’ve […]


Memories are electrical there are physical structures in the brain but if its not electrically active, there are no memories. So therefore you realise that whilst the electric switch turns on the light, and that’s very important in our lives (heats and transforms it), that piece of electricity in the brain activates your memories means […]

Capacitor Replacement Tutorial

Ever had one of those days where a cat was chewing up your circuit board? Or maybe you have an old amplifier where the capacitors seem to be leaking this yucky poisonous goo? If you have ever been in that situation you might be able to fix the circuit board by replacing the capacitors. Let’s […]

How Electrons Become Electricity

How electrons become electricity. Electrons are negatively charged particles in atoms. Electricity is the flow of electrons and a force is needed to move electrons. First we need to look at forces. Forces either push objects apart or pull them together. Gravity is a force of attraction that pulls objects together. Imagine sitting on a […]

Voltage, Current, Electricity, Magnetism

Particles can have a positive charge Or a negative charge Particles with the same charge repel one another Particles with opposite charges attract one another This is because charged particles create electric fields And Electric fields exert a force on charged particles When there is an electric field between two points … … we say […]
