I will make digital circuits and use it to upgrade and charge a laptop or netbook or android, by using a microcontroller sensor which can connect through bluetooth, infared, or usb. I will also use it to power a high amount of electricity.

Microcontrollers are small computers on only one integraded circuit. This contains its processor core. A microcontroller is peripheral as a system contained by itself with small processor and tiny size that in planted on top of a single circuit that has been integrated and maybe soldered. It has an ADC (Analog to Digital Converter), and a ISR (Interrupt Server Routine) which is used to program it. It has a CPU (Central Processing Unit), which is the brain of the microcontroller. Its memory or program can be erased threw the computer by ultraviolet light. An advanced microcontroller would have a six transistor SRAM.

The RAM is the random access memory, which is its basic data computer storage in a microcontroller. It is actually the integrated circuit of the microcontroller. Some RAMs are magnetic core memory chips. The system random access memory (SRAM) is the same thing as RAM.

Microcontrollers can be part of a motherboard. They don't have that high of memory hierarchy. Memory Hierarchy is known as the virtual memory of the hard drive.

A hard drive is an access device for the digigital memory of the computer. This is dominent for the digital data of an computer.

Circuit Theory

Basic integer to digitalize and convert to electricity. A circuit can be used to power upn electricity.

I want to demostrate digital sensors, or circuits and how you can use them to program things or power a high amount of electricity so you can find a cheap way to charge electricity or use microcontroller technology.

My project thesis statements and notes and data summary is available here.

What does this have to do with Einstein's laws of physics?

Einsteins Law E=MC Squared means Energy equals mass acceleration to the secondpower.

Fun Fact:

Einstein's Law is called Special Relativity. It was discovered by him in 1905, but he didn't get the noble prize of physics until 1921.

Quantum Physics Philosophy

  • Can you program the Microcontroller?
  • Can you use the microcontroller and the circuits to conduct electricity?
  • Can you program the Microcontroller?
  • Can you use the microcontroller and the circuits to conduct electricity?

Experimental Procedure

Step 1- If you connect the 4 circuit boards together and connect them to the 26.7 megahertz remote's circuit then it would be a digital circuit. You need to connect: 11-33, 12-30, 17-26, 27-29, 28-34, 7-35-38, 8-16-23, 25-32 with Zinc wires and connect the transistors together, then it would be a digital circuit than can power a high amount of electricity. The transmitters is 1-3 to transmitter 4-11-16. The project thatI have donerequires a high understanding of computer science, quantum physics, and even magnetism. It also demonstratesGeneral Relativity.

Step 7- Do steps on Page 17
75 in 1 Electronics Lab

Step 8- Attach Van De Graff Telsa Coil Sphere to the labs main control circuit part with wire glue and cover the sphere with black PVC tape

Step 9- Cannect 9-29-12 to 11-1-9's springs
Step 10- Connect 9-29-12 to the main control
Step 11- Connect 3-35 to 12-38
Step 12- Connect 3-35 to 11-1-9
Step 13- Do Experiments1,8, 11,19,and 22

Step 14- Connect the main controls, transistors, and resistor circuit modules with Zinc Wires

Step 15- Do experiment on page 12 of microcontroller manual to program microcontroller

Step 16- Cover Zinc Wires with PVC tape

I noticed that the circuits generated a high amount of electricity, which can save alot of money fromthe electrical bill.

I saw it work and power a high voltage amount and that Zinc is the best electric conductor.

Circuits can power a generater and many electric circuits can for a digital circuit. I noticed that my hypothesis was correct.

Technology is the study of making new things to make a better world. It requires the knowledge of Physics, Computer Science, and Inventions or Innowations.

Learnings: I had to learn basic chemistry and physics equations, as well as learn computer/innovation design and program.

  • The Zinc wireis the best conductor. My Hypothesis was correct.

General Reletivity is the movement of free light particles, which may also describe what torques are in physics.

I will also need to know how to program microcontrollers, which has to do with the basic understanding of computer science.

I have been studying computer science, and logic for years, so it wasn't easy to just come up with an idea like this.

Use Zinc wire because it is the best conductor of electricity and cover it withPVC tapeso if you touch it yoou won't get electrical shocked when its on, Don't put it on wet areas and don't touch the circuits when its on.

My hypothesis was right, and so was my thesis statement.

In my logic can you use the circuit idea to power generators, or electric cars, or homes if you used a more powerful circuit.

This would be interesting to know because if we did that,but with more advanced circuits, and it worked, thanwe could save our country millions.

This project also has to do with the simple study of electricity. I also studied CPUs and microcontrollers. This is why I think my project should win, because it involves physics, math, computerscience, and its pretty hard for a 14 year-old boy like myself to do but I did it, and I did it right. Thisproject also took alot of perseverance and trial errors to do. My project could have been better ifI added a switch-circuit to the deluxe electronics lab circuit.
