Lecture no. 4 from the course: Understanding Modern Electronics
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Examine the nuances of alternating and direct currents, see how transformers use electromagnetic induction to transform voltage levels in AC circuits, and observe the role of diodes and capacitors in regulating current. See how the DC power supplies that charge our cell phones are constructed so that they convert alternating to direct current.
