# Ch 36: Currents, Waves & Circuits

Demonstrate your level of knowledge about currents, waves, and circuits by going through this chapter. We offer convenient study options, with a 100% online format, around-the-clock access to learning tools, a mobile-friendly platform, and shorter lessons to make the most of your study time.

## Currents, Waves & Circuits - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, discover how currents, waves, and circuits work to form and transfer energy. Our instructors make this chapter fun and exciting to learn. To do so, they use video and article-style lessons that keep you fully engaged as you go over information about DC and AC current comparisons, related theories and effects, Planck's constant, wave-particle duality, and more. After you complete the chapter, you should possess a greater understanding of these topics and be able to:

• Explain alternating currents and displacement currents and impedance
• Identify alternating current circuits analyze circuits in the R-L-C series
• Check out the properties and sources of electromagnetic waves
• Examine Maxwell's Equations and the Davisson-Germer Experiment
• Explain the history and equation of the photoelectric effect
• Define diodes, integrated circuits, and light emitting diodes (LEDs)
• Review the fundamentals and properties of the semiconductor
• Show the uses for PNP and NPN transistors
• Outline the parts of semiconductors, circuit boards, and circuits

Some of the lessons in this chapter are presented as informative videos. Each video is short in duration, with the average length around 5-10 minutes. Underneath each video is a timeline feature, which breaks down the specific major concepts mentioned within each video. Therefore, if you are using these videos to get a quick recap before taking a major exam, the timeline feature gives you the ability to find individual concepts that you can go over more closely.
