A lot of people have been asking me about what they should make for the ISC Physics project. Well, all I can tell them and those who are here looking for more info is that I made a full wave rectifier. Its really easy and fun to make and the concepts of a diode are really cleared up. For more info, consult Wikipedia or Google: full wave rectifier.
While on this topic, I came across some good explanations about the internal working structure of a transistor. Its by an amateur electronics hobbyist but he does a good job on the whole. Check out his site.
