    Electronics is the field of manipulating electrical currents and
    voltages using passive and active components that are connected
    together to create circuits. Electronic circuits range from a simple
    load resistor that converts a current to a voltage, to computer
    central-processing units (CPUs) that can contain more than a million
    transistors. The following indices and documents provide a basic
    reference for understanding electronic components, circuits, and

    You are an absolutely thick fucking idiot.

  3. I didn't see that post. Do you have your very own special feed? I
    sometimes wonder if the german server doesn't pick everything up.

    I used google groups to see this one.

    At home, I use free, motzarella and the german one.

    And what makes you think you can't use a resistor to 'convert a current
    to a voltage'?
    It's how your DVM works on the amps setting.

    Context is evrything, and if we accept that they, and now you, are
    using an expression that isn't true in the literal sense, then perhaps
    you're right. If not, perhaps you'd care to explain how you can
    'convert' a current to 'a voltage', whatever one of those is.

    Don't be such a pedant. Aven't you got an ohm to go to?

  9. "Display a current draw using a shunt (resistor) accross a voltmeter"?
    Nada de "convert".

    You cannot "convert" current to a voltage because intrinsically they
    have a relationship. Put it another way, see this link:

    "Display" I can live with, "convert" is wrong.

    Which is my point.

    Your point seems to be that you think the OP is "an absolutely thick
    fucking idiot"
    because you don't like his choice of verb. So what verb would you use?

    Take a current source, shunt it to earth with a resistor, and you now
    have a voltage source.
    What verb would you like to use to describe that conversion?

    Just how many ways can all you mongs describe exactly the same thing,
    using different words, and *completely* fail to see you're all saying
    the same thing?

    I'm totally "un-electric" and avoid it at all costs coz I can get a shock
    just walking past a battery, but that sounded a bit odd to me too.
