In this video tutorial, viewers learn how to draw a rose garden. Begin by marking the locations of the objects, such as the pathway and the arch. Then draw the rosebushes surrounding the path and arch. The bushes only need to be drawn with cross hatching or quick lines. They don't need too much detail. Then add some circular boxes into the bushes as the roses. Now draw some grass around the pathway and stones in the pathway. In the center of the arch, add the center fountain piece. Finish by ...

This video teaches the basics of Ohm's law, which is an important equation in electrical engineering. The three variables which are used in this equation are V, which stands for voltage, I for current, and R for resistance. The equation for the law itself is I=V/R. This law defines the relationship between these three very important electrical properties. The host of the video further explains what voltage, current, and resistance are and how they work in relation to an electrical current. Gi...
In an old video posted on YouTube, about how to make a speaker in a tissue box, they got a Kleenex box, foil, motor, and battery. Of course the motor ran off the battery and it made a sound, but there's no way to just plug in the audio jack from your Apple iPhone into the Kleenex box where it's contacts obviously aren't going to touch any electrical contacts and have it work. It's not possible.
The alternator on your car is arguably the most important part of the electrical system, and if they break even a little weird things can start happening all over your car. Watch this video to learn how to check an alternator and make sure it's working properly.
Measuring the amperage, or number of amps, in an electrical circuit requires a tool called a multi-meter. They are somewhat difficult to use, but fortunately for you this video explains in great detail how multi-meters work and what you need to do to ensure that they work. The creator tests the amperage of a power drill batter as an example.
There's more than one way to test a fuse, and it doesn't have to be expensive. In this video tutorial, see how to test an electrical fuse with a screwdriver tester or multi-meter.

Build a faraday motor with tips from this how-to video. In the early 1800s, physicist Michael Faraday invented the first device to convert electrical energy into mechanical motion. This is an easily built version of his motor. The magnet sets up a magnetic field, and the electrical current through the screw sets up a separate electromagnetic field around the screw. The two fields react and the result is rotation.
