Electromagnetic farady’s law direction

I have a question about direction of vectoral line integral in formula of electric potential and electric field. In electrostatic I assumed \$B\$ is positive potential and \$A\$ is negative potential so the boundary of the integral is negative to positive and also there is a minus sign outside the integral, and also \$d\ell\$ direction […]

I’m an electrical idiot – can you help me?

I have overhead doors at the back of my office building. I wanted to wire up a large red LED next to the light switch so that when employees leave, the light would be red indicating the doors are up. I purchased a step down transformer of some sort that reduces the voltage to 6 […]

How to control an E9001 Servo

I bought an E9001 servo on Amazon (which was my first mistake, but it was cheap- see link) to use in a robotics project, but I can’t figure out how to use it, and I cannot find any formal documentation for it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F1NZ6GR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I’m trying to control it with an STM32L411 Discovery board by sending […]

When can I neglect the voltage drop of diodes in a circuit? [closed]

Let’s suppose a Rectifier with Vd,on=0.7 V is connected to a sin-voltage source with Vamp=10 V. When in this case of forward bias can I ignore the voltage drop of the diode? Or is it only possible if the input voltage has a very high amplitude? I’ve heard that you can do in for example […]
