SUBCOURSE 308, INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRICITY
Ben Franklin's experiment with a kite opened up a whole new way of life to
later generations. As a result of this experiment, we have a world that has become

electricity to run their factories; radio, telephone and telegraph communications
operate with electricity; medicine depends upon electricity for X-ray and diathermy
to both heat and cool their homes, preserve food, run dishwashers and irons, and
various entertainment devices; our homes and highways use electricity for lighting;
ships, planes, trains, buses, and cars all require electricity to operate.

This subcourse is designed to teach you electrical fundamentals, which is the
basis for repairing any electronic equipment.
