Do the coil work simiular like coils in a transformer? Increasing or decreasing the volt depending on how many times you rotade the coil?

This video has got me considering disassembling one of my smart switches, to see precisely why it frequently locks in the closed position. I assumed it was an unavoidable consequence of the high current draw of the items connected through the switch.... but now I'm thinking it's just a bad design!

Try to drive motors inside a electric razor . Take out them and try to deliver dc voltage as high as possible . After the contact brushes melt find any solution for that to drive hi voltage like around 40v . Dc . Definately I'm sure . Even a 10k mah battery pack with 12 v . Can. Not able to run it . Even with custom made hardcore brushes . 😂😂

You could also explain how to prevent the same kind of issue in AC powered relays. Diode is quite obvious in DC delays but with AC ones... Capacitor and resistor?

Electroboom i need your help. If i have a 3v to 400kv boost up converter (which is not exactly 400kv as it is made in china) and i observed that the spark produced between open terminals of wire at around 3cm (let's assume) and i connect both terminals to a small mesh net with a distance of slightly more then 3cm, so that there is no spark in between when circuit is active, so my question is that if a mosquito come between the two mesh or say mosquito sits on one of them, then the distance between two mesh become shorter, so is spark happens through the moquito? can mosqquito die? we normally use mosquito killer rackets in which the distance between mesh is very small and mosquito has to touch both terminals o be killed, but if above given statement is true i can make a device to be kept near or under desk or and area of misquitos to get rid of them.

If you like the engineering of relays, you can take it to it's next level and go into circuit breakers... and not simply the smaller 120V circuit breakers, but also the much larger industrial ones you see in power distribution systems, that are capable of opening and closing circuits at hundreds or even thousands of volts.

I thought about how the two sides of the chain in the curve coliding differently with the air.There is faster speed on the outer side and the vector is opposite too ,like when you use optics.

Mehdi, I finally viewed your full video. Your analysis was very good. BTW, what's going in is a centrifugal half-loop lifting the chain. It's formed by stiffness plus an oriented pull vector, such as you running. And yes, the little snaps are real, but they _must_ average out since they are mid-chain. You won this, and the Royal Academy paper was flatly wrong. Thanks for standing up for yourself and not buckling to Big Names and lots of equations. Science needs more folks like you.

So, you mentioned a transistor. My basic electronics teacher in high school once said, "There are two kinds of people: those that know how transistors work and those that know how to use them," implying there is no overlap. How in the hell do transistors work? I fall in the camp of "knowing how to use them," and have no idea how they even work. I've looked at a lot of material and it all sounds like gibberish to me. I feel like if anyone can explain to me how they work, it's you. Also, I did my best to comb through your videos and didn't see anything on them. Maybe I missed something, or maybe you just haven't done a video yet.

Look into how diodes work to understand p-n junctions. Transistors are just pnp or npn, so they have two junctions (hence why they're called BIPOLAR junction transistors or BJTs). The important part in my opinion is understanding the depletion region, which grows or shrinks based on voltage polarity to allow or block current flow.

This is the first ElectroBOOM vid I've ever seen... and you had me subbed as soon as you started screwing your spoon to that piece of board. Awesome work! You had me laughing throughout. As an Arduino hobbyist I'm looking forward to that Digital Circuits with Relays vid... going to have to see if its been created yet.
