But just what is the force that provokes the electrons to move in harmony? What commands the electronic bucket brigade? Let the force be with you The force that pushes electrons along is technically called an electromotive force (abbreviated EMF or E), but it is more commonly known as voltage (abbreviated V). You measure voltage by using units called (conveniently) volts (abbreviated V). Apply enough voltage to a conductor, provide a complete path through which an electric charge can move, and the free electrons 13 14 Part I: Fathoming the Fundamentals of Electronics in the conductor’s atoms will move in the same direction, like sheep being herded into a pen — only much faster.
Two 2N3904, 2N2222, BC548, or any general‐purpose NPN bipolar transistors •• One 2N3906, 2N2907, or any general‐purpose PNP bipolar transistor ✓✓ Integrated circuits (ICs) •• One 74HC00 CMOS quad 2‐input NAND gate, 14‐pin dual‐in‐line package (DIP).

I recommend you purchase one or two extra chips. 25‐$1 online or $2 in RadioShack stores. •• One LM386 audio power amplifier (8‐pin DIP).
You can build the LED circuit by using alligator clips to connect the components or by using a solderless breadboard to make the connections. I walk you through both construction methods. Note that when I discuss taking voltage and current measurements, I provide pictures showing the breadboard circuit. You can read more about constructing circuits in Chapter 15. Building the circuit with alligator clips Use the alligator clips to make connections in the circuit, as shown in Figure 3-7. Note that the orientation of the resistor doesn’t matter, but the orientation of the LED does matter.
