## How to Become an Electronics Technician

To say that technology is the single most important driving factor in the manufacturing sector is a bit of an understatement. Automation, robotics, machine learning, and advanced artificial intelligence are all playing an increasingly significant role in the production of goods. Does that mean fewer workers will be required to oversee production? Perhaps.

## How to Calculate Wire Diameter & Cross-Sectional Area

In this blog, we will review the concept of resistance, resistivity and steps to calculate the minimum cross-sectional area and diameter of any desired conductor.

## What is Resistance?

The property of a device or a circuit that opposes the movement of current through it. Resistance is measured in Ohms (Ω). The resistance of any material with a uniform cross-sectional area is determined by the following four factors:

## An Overview of Magnetic Field Lines and its Characteristics

In this blog, we will review the theory of Magnetic Fields and its basic concept. We all know that magnets exert forces on each other and its magnetic force is distributed around. Magnetic field lines are used to describe these forces around the magnet. We understand that magnets have two poles and that depending on the orientation of two magnets there can be an attraction (opposite poles) or repulsion (similar poles).
