Im happy to report that i took a major step in my learning journey.  Having finally procured a few items to start using breadboards and actually DOING AND SEEING THINGS rather than reading about them and trying to visualise mentally. 

here is the first ever experiment directions

You cannot view this attachment.

and here is my assembled circuit

measuring voltage drop across the resistor

and voltage drop across the diode

in the grand scheme of things i have a long way to go ha ha

but every journey begins with a single step

thanks for being a part of it

(because i hope you can be part of it when i start hooking up transistors and capacitors and signals and scopes.....and start crying out for help   :)  :'(  8)

You have no idea how many people just refuse to learn the basics and start at the beginning.
It is the #1 most important thing you can do, so you are off to the best start you can make.   :)

Ha what scares me is when numbers and letters are together.

Any chance you'd be interested in a heathkit et-100(provided your CONUS)? $20 plus shipping

It looks like you have a great power supply on that bench.
There are no stupid questions.
There are only stupid mistakes.
