The – rows are typically connected to the negative terminal. Thus the rows act as power supply buses, running the length of the breadboard. The central section of the breadboard is split into two. Each half consists of 63 columns of 5 holes. The 5 holes in each of these columns are connected together. The gap between each set of 63 columns allows a Dual Inline Package (DIP) integrated circuit to be used on the breadboard without its opposing pins being connected together. The jumper wire kit (Figure 2) contains assorted lengths of pre ­stripped wire. (Stripping means removing the insulation from an end of a wire). Working with pre ­cut and pre ­stripped wire is much easier than cutting and stripping your own wire. The wire lengths are color ­coded using the same colors as the resistor color code. For example a short yellow jumper wire will connect two holes that are four holes apart. Similarly a long orange jumper wire will connect two holes that are thirty holes apart. Resistors (Figure 3) are the small, usually light brown tubular things with wires (leads) sticking out of each end and four colored rings on the body. The colored rings correspond to the resistor's value. Use the resistor color code guide supplied in the lab kit to determine a resistor value. The ceramic disc capacitor is the light brown circular component with two wires. It is marked in black with  ­12 the numbers “104”. These numbers represent its value in pico (1x10 ) Farads, pF. The third number, 4, represen...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
