Each of these components has a specific purpose. Resistors are intended to resist; capacitors are there to capacitate; and inductors are there to induct. However, each of the defined roles that these components have can entwine from time to time, resulting in electricians and the creators of appliances to think very carefully when constructing electrical circuits to make a product work.

In some scenarios, the resistance needs to be carefully monitored as it could affect the performance of the product. In this instance, we’re going to use an amplifier as an example. If there was too much resistance, it could be possible that the resistor would cause the amplifier to play less loudly, which wouldn’t be effective enough to be sold on the mainstream market.

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in the world of electronics, it’s a good idea to begin the process of reading up about the different types of components you will be working with. As many people specialise in fixing problems as they occur, this means that you are under considerable pressure to know these products inside and out. After all, you’re going to be the person who is fixing all of them!

By going on Amazon and conducting some basic searches for books, you’ll be on the way to becoming educated in the world of electronics. It certainly is a demanding industry to immerse yourself in, and by ensuring that you go on courses and become well-read, you’ll have a promising career ahead of you. Good luck!

"Resistor" is a primary electrical element,non-dynamic element.it loses energy in the form of heat
"Capacitor" is a primary electrical element,dynamic element.it stores energy in the form of potential energy.
"inductor" is a primary electrical element,dynamic element.it stores energy in the form of kinetic energy.

The resistor, capacitor and the inductor form linear relationships between voltage and current. All three are elementary circuit elements. The resistor is the simplest circuit element. In a resistor, the voltage is proportional to the current, with constant of proportionality R is known as "resistance."

Capacitor is the place for storing charge. The charge in the capacitor is proportional to the voltage The constant of proportionality or the Capacitance is expressed in units of farads (F), named after the English physicist Michael Faraday. If the voltage across a capacitor is constant, then the current flowing is as good as zero.

The inductor stores magnetic flux. Inductors of high values are capable of storing more flux. Inductance are expressed in units of henries (H), named after the physician Joseph Henry.
