This is a circuit designed by Thomas Edison, inventor of the electric light bulb.

This is Edison's design for an electric telegraph that could send and receive signals faster than earlier models.

And of course, here is his design for the electric light bulb.

Here's a clear diagram of some of the symbols we saw in class, along with some others that seem interesting.

In this picture of a computer's circuit board, we see real life applications of what we've learned in class.

This is a circuit for a car. It's a more complicated version of what we've seen. I wouldn't want to calculate the Req of this!

Here's a cool trick to make sure you never miscalculate while using Ohm's Law!
