Components in this category:

The main components used in electronics are of two general types: passive (e.g. resistors and capacitors) and active (e.g. transistors and integrated circuits). The main difference between active and passive components is that active ones require to be powered in some way to make them work. Active components can also be used to amplify signals. If you aren't already familiar with how materials conduct electricity and behave as insulators and semi-conductors you might find it helpful to read the pages linked to the picture of a good conductor before going on to read about components.
