Lesson 4: The Capacitor

After getting a nice introduction to the resistor, it’s customary to learn about the second most common component in electronics, called the capacitor. This lesson performs some cool experiments that attempt to convince you that a capacitor could also be called a small battery, while also introducing the basic idea of storing electrical charge.
