    I really appreciated the time you took and your explanations. Cheers

    In the last part, where the LED is compared to a balloon and the voltage is
    “pressure”, what role does current “volume” play? Thanks!

    I also would like to add that after watching your electricity basics video
    and I’m only 5 minutes in on this one, I have never understood the symbols
    on a multimeter such as dc and ac but after seeing the straight line on the
    oscilloscope and putting two and two together I understand them, no more
    cringing and hoping I don’t have it on the wrong setting now, you are very
    informative sir

    Thank You very much for your video.Extremely useful for me

    And to think I actually thought I could shove my multimeter onto wires
    without worry.

  6. Steve Franklin says:

    Your video tutorials are so awesome. So easy to digest, especially for a
    new egg like me! I’ve subscribed & will learn more about my multimeter.
    Thank you!

  7. Don DeCaire says:

    Well done, I appreciate the tutorial will be watching others!

    DC power is more dangerous 

  9. Thetrucky69 says:

    can mjlorton or anybody correct me if im wrong, basically is voltage the
    measurement or value of power that a device is rated at (output) and
    current is the flow of electricity and the measurement of current is the
    amount of power a device draws from a power source and continuity is a
    constant unbroken flow of power and ohms is resistance that sort of
    regulates the flow hence the term resistance.

  10. severalmalfunctions says:

    Sorry for this probably dumb question but could you clarify why are you
    measuring the voltage in series and not in parallel? Shouldn’t it be
    measured in parallel?

  11. Ebo Cole says:

    Very informative and excellent teaching. Thanks for the information.
    Extremely useful for me. Thanks once again.

    DC (Direct Current) is more dangerous than AC (Alternating Current). The
    reasoning is hidden in their names.

    Direct current goes forwards and only forwards.
    Alternating current goes forwards and backward, in a sense. It’s not 100%
    continuous.

    If you were to grab onto a wire with AC power running through it, it would
    hurt, your muscles would spasm and you’d let go because the electricity
    goes back and forth.

    If you were to grab onto a wire with DC power running through it, it would
    hurt, your muscles would spasm and you would not be able to let go because
    the electricity going through your body overrides to electrical impulses
    from your brain, and it’s continuous. This locks up your muscles and you
    are unable to let go of the electrical wire.

    Your videos are Great! very easy to understand and follow. Thank you!

  14. Kelli Hulin Stone says:

    Just beginning to work on power tools and this information is invaluable to
    me. Thank you !!!

    Entry level, at £240 here in England im not so sure.

    i think it was about time i learned to use a multimeter.

  17. Jeremiah Dauphinais says:

    I just diagnosed my car door with a multimeter (with the help of my dad). A
    cheap $20 from Autozone. This video makes me want to get a Fluke! I’m
    motivated to learn this now!

  18. Jonathan Phillips says:

    Wow great tutorial I will definitely be passing this information along to
    those flow DIY’ers I know. Also to answer your quiz question the answer is
    AC current is more dangerous. Once again thanks for sharing your knowledge
    and presenting it in such an easy to understand video. 

  19. azpowerhitter says:

    Wow. Thank you so much from the USA. very detailed. 

  20. MrPaddymackdaddy says:

    I would say a.c is more dangerous due to the fact that you don’t need a
    path to ground in order to get a shock , ie if you touch a live wire (A.C)
    you are guaranteed to get a shock , this is not the case with d.c. That
    said if you complete a path to ground with (D.C) then you will get fried. I
    am led to believe that D.C. shocks are a lot worse than there A.C.
    comparison. I am glad that I have never been in a position to substantiate
    this !
    Good vid by the way, cheers.

    I have learned more in your 30 minute tutorial than in the six months I
    have been on the job. Thank you for keeping it simple and willing to share!
    Oh, AC is more dangerous

  24. Neil1454 says:

    Brilliantly explained. Watched a fair few of your videos now and so far
    there all really good.
    Thank you for taking the time to make them in the way you did.

    DC is more dangerous than AC if voltage is same
