can I use a breadboard for analog circuits at, say, 5Mhz? Or would it cause problems. I will make a filter on it. Would I have to actually use solder and stuff?

Okay guys I've looked up a ton of stuff and I'm just too stupid to understand. Can someone explain to me in 6th grade English what transistors, resistors, and capacitors do?

Hi /diy/. I'm a chemistry student, but I'm interested in how raw minerals and shit is turned into usable chemicals. Every once in a while while browsing wikipedia there'll be a short snippet about the original process for making such and such chemical. I figure there's a few people here who like to know how to do X or how to make Y from scratch in case of apocalypse, or armageddon, or what have you; but what about chemistry? I'm having a hard time finding a modern text on the production of chemicals from raw materials that's doable on a scale that doesn't require a gigantic plant. Mostly all I can find are archaic alchemy-age papers and journals about individual processes. Does a modern guide to alchemical-level chemistry exist?

Hey /diy/ I'm really confused how to drive an npn transistor... I'm using this NPN: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1600370.pdf and i would like to turn it on using a 3.3v arduino DIO. I'm having trouble calculating the base resistor? I've searched google countless times only to be more confused. Any help would be great!

Sup /diy/ I have basic soldering skills and a decent amount of programming skills. However, I know very little about PCBs, integrated circuits, creating programmable boards, etc etc. I want to learn. Can anyone suggest books, internet articles, courses, etc. to use?

Sup, /diy/. Real beginner here. I would google but I don't know the name of the thing I'm asking... so let me try to describe it. I've got this here drawer thing above the cabinet under my sink. Well, 2 as you can see. And they're held in by these plastic doohickeys that pop right off - they're just panels and have no functionality. I want to take one, install a basket (for sponges, etc.) and create some sort of hinge joint(?) on the bottom so that I can stick a handle on there and whenever I need to use a sponge I can just pull it out. Does that make sense? I'm not super good with jargon, but I can drill a hole if I need to drill a hole. >already taken measurements, just need to know what to do

So I've got a bunch of Li-Ion battery packs (mostly from cameras). I think about 2kg. Most of them are dead. Can I do anything useful? Like, extract the lithium?

LED Control Module 7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I am looking to add some LED lights to something. I am thinking a dozen or so. What is out there that i can plug some LEDs ito and provide power to them? I tried hacking up an old 9volt power supply but i think it burned the LED out almost immediately. Need something with a switch.

NV monocular repair

11 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My dad bought a broken nightvision monocular for $25, expecting to be able to fix it. Neither of us have any experience with these things, but I noticed that there's a white film near the eyepiece that lets almost no light through. Pic related, the monocular with lenses removed. You can see the white film. It appears to be a Night Owl Optics Explorer Marine Pro. From what I can tell, I need to replace the image intensifier, but I'm not sure where to get one or how to do it.

I've been thinking about an Art Video project. I've always been fascinated by the idea of multiple televisions broadcasting the same thing for some reason (it's hard to explain). What I'd like to do if take a video and have it playing on several televisions at once (we're talking 10-15 TVs); the only problem is, TVs being moderately expensive, the only ones I can afford will be crappy, analog TVs (although I do prefer that aesthetic). Now, would I be able to hook up 10-15 televisions to one VCR/controller, and have them playing the same content simultaneously? I'm not saying hook up 15 VCRs, press play, and hope they all sync, I'm wanting perfect synchronization. For this, I'm thinking about using multiple RCA Splitters. I feel like the main issue with this would be splitting one channel into fifteen channels will greatly weaken the signal to each TV. Would there be any way to strengthen the signal on each RCA splitter? I'm really bad at electronics and have very little knowledge. I'm just wondering if what I'm wanting to do is even possible, really.
