  • 3.Base points:a. Create four more base points at e25, b16,f30, and c8.b. Use the other probe to find three holesconnected to each of these points.c. Again draw these connections as solidlines.4.Additional base points:a. Choose two more base points on theoutside long, paired lines. These lines arenot lettered or numbered but have a stripeof paint along the side. Mark them on theprevious diagram.b. Find three holes connected to each ofthese points.c. Again draw these connections as solidlines.5.Be sure that you can define the termsprototype, insulator, and conductor.6.With your multimeter set on CONTINUITY,walk around and identify at least five commonitems that are insulators and five commonmaterials that are conductors.Lesson 3Your First CircuitYou build an actual circuit on the breadboard, thenmeasure and observe how the voltage is used whilegetting more experience with your multimeter.The solderless breadboard has a definite layout,as shown in Figure L3-1. One strip of the springmetal in the breadboard connects the five holes.You can easily connect five pieces in one strip. Thetwo long rows of holes allow power access alongthe entire length of the breadboard.Setting Up the SolderlessBreadboardYou will have a standard setup for every circuit.The battery clip is connected to one of the firstrows of the breadboard, and the diode connectsthat row to the outer red line (see Figure L3-2).Lesson 3 ■Your First Circuit 11Figure L2-11Figure L3-1Figure L3-2
