LESSON 6 - CIRCUIT DIAGRAMS
The different types of components we have encountered each have a symbol to represent them in a circuit diagram. A circuit diagram is just a picture of how all the components in a circuit are connected together.
Here are the symbols for the components we have met:
Here is a complete circuit diagram. Don't worry about what the circuit does (it just lights up the LED) but notice the fact that you can trace a continuous route from the battery through the resistor and LED and back to the battery, i.e. it is a circuit.
