Objectives
1. Know basic electronics components and
its function ( Res, var res, relay,
transistor, temp sensor and light sensor)
2. Learn the electrical symbols.
3. Series and Parallel Circuits
4
Power Supply
• AC rating ( 230V, 110V, 415V)
• AC to DC power supply
• DC to DC power supply
• Batteries
5
Switches
• Samples of switches

1. Resistor (fixed and variable)
 Resist electricity
 Used to supply the correct
voltage to the various
components in an electric
circuit.
Variable resistor

• Write down the colour code
• Check the table
• State the resistor value

Total top series resistance
Total bottom series resistance
= 10 K Ω + 30 K Ω
= 20 K Ω + 40 K Ω

Voltage can be
stepped down from
9 V to 3 V and 6V.

Va  V1
R1  R2
Or Va = IR2
By replacing the 10K
resistor with a 50K
variable resistor, we can
vary the stepped down
voltage.

Exercise 2:
a) Device A has a voltage drop of 2 V across it and
needs to draw a current of 4 mA. Suggest a
suitable value for resistor R.

b) What is the circuit arrangement below called? If A and C are
connected across a 6 V battery, calculate the voltage at B if the
variable resistor is set to (i) 5 kΩ (ii) 40 k Ω

2. Relay
 Electrically operated switch
 Coil of wire and a metal lever
which changes the position of the
switch.
 Advantage - permits a low voltage
DC circuit to control a completely
separate high-power circuit
13
3. Transistors
Transistors have many uses including switching,
voltage/current regulation, and amplification
Two types NPN and PNP
14
4. Temperature Sensors (Thermistor)
Decreases as the temperature rises (negative
temperature coefficient or ntc thermistor)
Increase in resistance with temperature. (positive
temperature coefficient, or ptc thermistor)
15
5. Light Dependent Resistor
(LDR)
 A LDR varies it resistance according to the amount of light falling on its surface.
 Total darkness -1 MOhm
 In bright light - a couple of kOhm.
