Jermaine Johnson chapter 2 Basic electronics blog Posted on 2016-05-17 by Jermaine Johnson

Second week at the studio working with my mentor I learned about how different sounds and instruments work together in a mix for example...(drums, bass, snare ,synth ,horns )and how you can shape and pan different frequencies to work together in a mix.  Having to clean session make everything more easier to find and everything is more organized make notes name tracks and color code                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

In chapter 2 I have learned about electricity and how it works in the life we live in today

  1. ELECTRICITY? -The atom is what makes up all things. All matter is composed of atoms. An atom is comprised of protons, neutrons, and electrons. The nucleus (or center of the atom) is made up of protons and neutrons, and according to the Bohr model, the electrons circle the nucleus similar to the way the moon orbits around the earth  / The electrons are said to be negatively charged and the protons are said to be positively charged. Neutrons are neutral and have no charge.This means that they can flow from one atom to the next. An atom that loses an electron is said to be positively charged. Conversely, an atom with more electrons than protons is negatively charged.
  2. RESISTANCE - Resistance in a wire depends on how thick and how long it is, and what it is made of. The thickness of wire is called its gauge. The smaller the gauge, the bigger the wire. Every single electronic component including wire has a level of resistance. resistance is the measure of opposition to the flow of electricity measured in ohms 
  3. VOLTAGE - Voltage is the measure of the amount of electromotive force.The higher the amount of pressure the higher the voltage.
  4. CURRENT - Current is measured in amperes abbreviated amps.The ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge passing a point in an electric circuit per unit of time.Voltage An electronic circuit is a device that provides a path for electrons.
  5. ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS - An electronic circuit is made up of singular electronic components, such as transistors, capacitors, diodes, resistors, and inductors connected by conductive material through which electric current can flow. The combination of components and wires allows various operations to be performed; signals can be amplified, filtered, attenuated and much more.
  6. ANALOG CIRCUITS - Electronic circuits can be broken down into two major categories: analog, and digital. An analog circuit is a circuit that carries a voltage that is either continuous or changing. Analog circuits can be broken down into two categories, series or parallel. In a parallel circuit, an equal amount of voltage is distributed to the components due to how those components are wired.
  7. DIGITAL CIRCUITS - digital circuit differs from an analog circuit mainly because, while the job of the analog circuit is the transmission of voltage to components, a digital circuit transmits information. A digital circuit is capable of transmitting binary values in the form of an on or an off signal.
  8. ALTERNATING CURRENT VS DIRECT CURRENT - Direct current flows electrons in one direction.Direct current is typically found in batteries, solar panels, and low-voltage applications.Alternating current (AC) is the type of electron movement that is present when you plug something into a wall socket. The power in your home is AC power.

1. Electric current flows through high-voltage transmission lines from a power generation plant.

2. Power transformers reduce voltage at substations and re-route electricity to the main feeder lines, or circuits, that transmit power into your neighborhood. Feeder lines are protected by circuit breakers.

3. Lateral power lines connect to main feeder lines. From there electricity is routed through smaller areas.

4. Nearing the end of the line, transformers on individual power poles reduce voltage and distribute electricity to your home and commercial facilities. Usually, one transformer can handle voltage for up to four homes.

5. The electric connection at your house is the last stop, and AC power is available from the outlets in your home. United States Europe AC Power How is power transferred from a power station to your house? The power we use in our homes takes a journey to end up at the outlet. Energy is created in multiple ways. Thermal energy is created from heat moving turbines. Nuclear power splits atoms and harnesses the energy that is produced. Fossil fuel
