Tada! Data! (new data added)

Today in class, we smelt smoke a few times. This is your initiation into the “magic smoke” club. Regardless of whatever else you have been taught in science, there is a secret piece of knowledge that will never be taught to you by other science teachers…

Magic smoke is the secret ingredient that makes all pieces of electronic equipment work. The proof is that when you short out (break or burn out) an electrical component, smoke is released and the device stops working. Obviously, therefore all electrical components have smoke inside them, and when it gets out, it won’t work until you get it back in!

You now know the circuit secret! Next time you smell the smoke – try and catch it all and see if you can put it back in – maybe that’ll fix it!

So, your own prac will often let the magic smoke out – don’t worry, you now know how to fix it!

Data is below:

Here is the next circuit I would like you all to assemble:

Data 1 (from Loughlin)

Data 2 (from Larissa) (updated here)

Data 3 (From Ellen)

Should you really want to get into the masochism of circuit analysis, try Y-Δ transforms…

See you in class.

    how would you catch the smoke to put it back in though?..

  2. Thisara Says:

    You have to catch it with ur hands, put it in a jug, and poor it back into the component 😀

  3. Patrick Says:

    your kidding right? LOL
    next you’ll tell me ill have to use a straw, suck it all up and then blow it back into the components >.>

  4. Thisara Says:

    well im not kidding 🙂
    i wonna see u try PATRICKKKKKKKKK

  5. Said Mosavi Says:

    well what it actually means is
    if you observe smoke cmoing out u got to catch the smoke ( by taking out $20 dollers ) and putting it back in the device (thats by giving the cash to school)

    who dosent agree?

  6. Loughlin Says:

    Hey Sir, when do we need to have our planet/moon photos in by?

  7. Loughlin Says:

    How do we actually explain the presence of gravity? You can prove relatively easily things like electrostatic attraction, we can theoretically define strong force… Where does gravity come into the equation? How can we actually show where gravity “comes from”?

  8. Thisara Says:

    From the general theory or relativity, time is slowed by mass and the path of a particle in the vicinity of a mass is curved in an attempt to go in a straight line in curved space time.Gravity was created in the big bang when quarks combined to form particles with mass.

  9. Patrick Says:

    Sir, could you please post up the practice exam asap?
