This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Lesson 3: The Resistor

Insulators, Conductors and Resistor. They're all related, now let's learn how.


Lecture 3 Lesson Page -

The resistor is the first fundamental component that anyone studies when they start learning about electronics. Ideas like what is an insulator or a conductor are introduced and related to electrical resistance. This lesson covers all of those topics and even adds some mathematical theory called Ohm’s law.
