Power Dissipation At Home DIY Electronics
Power Dissipated By Resistor: How To Blow Up A Circuit
When you pass a current through a resistor it gets hot. The hotter it gets the more it can adversely affect the circuit that it's a part of. If it gets too hot then it can burst into flames before eventually failing completely. If this happens then it can have catastrophic consequences so it's a good idea to understand why components get hot and design circuits that don't overload the components used. I set about to destroy a resistor and demonstrate what happens when you dissipate too much power in a component. And I wanted to blow something up. More...
