Welcome to the world of electronics. One of the essentials in electronics is knowing how to solder. Learning this skill will allow you to build things that you may not even completely understand. And you may even end up building something that may amaze you. So let us get started…
Simply put, soldering is a process of connecting any two pieces of electronic components together. It is very simple. First, we just put the two components together. And then instead of using any glue, we melt an alloy (which itself is a mixture of two metals) at the point where the two component overlap each other.
Getting confused? Don’t worry!
We have a comic for you to understand the process of soldering. Read on…
Soldering is Easy!
Q1: Once you plug in the soldering iron, which part of soldering iron becomes hot?
- Wire that comes out
Q2: What is the use of a wet sponge?
- To clean the tip of soldering iron
- To wipe off the dirt on the table
- To place hot soldering iron
Q3: Why is it important to wash your hands after soldering?
Q4: What is the temperature of the soldering iron?
If you are able to answer the above questions, then you can proceed further. Else go through the comic once more.
Congratulations! You are now ready to practice!
