Calculate and convert
Electronics is not always plain sailing. Although a small circuit can be built quickly without jotting down complex formulas, a deeper or more theoretical approach soon calls for equations and basic maths. There is no need however to know everything from the top of your head as the Internet is available to assist.Electronics can be downright easy… but also horrendously difficult. Once you’ve mastered a few basic ‘laws’ and have an idea of the operation of a number of passive and active parts, you’ll get remarkably far in designing a circuit. However, far more learning is in order for a theoretical approach or more accurate calculations on electronic circuits. Soon, you may feel drowned in formulae and equations and the fun wears off quickly. Those of you who have completed a formal education in electronics probably don’t have to be told how complex a circuit design can turn out to be.
