Learn how to make a circuit diagram by using these free and printable examples of circuit diagram in the following images. Unlike a block diagram or layout diagram, a circuit diagram shows the actual electrical connections. To get started, take a look at the first diagram below.
Circuit diagrams are a pictorial way of showing circuits. The important thing to note on this diagram is what everything stands for. You see that there are straight lines that connect each of the symbols together. Those lines represent a wire. The important thing to remember about this symbol is that the long bar on top represents the positive terminal on a battery while the short bar on the bottom represents the negative terminal. Electricians and engineers draw circuit diagrams to help them design the actual circuits. Here is an example circuit diagram.
There are hundreds of different symbols that can be used in a circuit diagram. These include simple images of objects such as a battery or a resistor for a pictorial style circuit diagram, or industry-standard symbols for objects such as capacitors or inductors.
The best way to understand circuit diagrams is to look at some examples of circuit diagrams. Drawing circuit diagrams is not difficult but it takes a little practice to draw clear diagrams. Click on any of these circuit diagrams as your guidance and references!
