  • typo??!

    “In this case, the meter reads 0.97, meaning this resistor has a value of 0.97kΩ, or about 1kΩ or 1000 Ω (remember you are in the 20kΩ or 20,000 Ohm mode so you need to move the decimal three places to the right or 9,900 Ohms”

    0.97kΩ = 9,900 Ohms ?!?!

      Good catch! I fixed a few issues with this part. Now reads correctly.

  • Uhh… Sorry, but (-) isn’t ground, normally. Is this a typo or are you talking in conventional plumber terms?

      It may be a vernacular thing. It can get confusing when you have multiple references but for most of the DC circuits I teach with, ‘-’ and ‘gnd’ and ‘ground’ get used interchangeably.
