### Art of drawing figures & circuits

1. 1. THE ART OF DRAWING FIGURES & CIRCUITS Figures & Circuits can talk to us, more than words…! Vidyasagar Sir explains… www.vidyasagar.academy
2. 2. FIGURES CAN TALK TO US…!  Anyone can draw figures, but not NEAT AND CLEAN.  Very few students can draw figures TO THE SCALE.  Even a few of them can draw figures with correct orientation.  Drawing a perfect figure is an art! www.vidyasagar.academy
3. 3. HOW TO LEARN THIS ART?  Keen observation is THE KEY to acquire this art.  When your teacher draws a figure on blackboard, it is NOT your free time to chat with your friends.  Instead, you must concentrate; how is he drawing it? www.vidyasagar.academy
4. 4. WHAT TO OBSERVE?  Observe each and every action of the teacher…!  From where does he start?  What are the movements of his hand? How does he draw curves?  How does he connect one component with the other?  What are the size proportions of one component with the other?  Which component in the figure is distinct than the others?  The list could be, just endless…!
5. 5. REMEMBER…  It’s up to you, how do you watch it and keep it, in your mind…!  Most importantly, HOW DO YOU TRY IT FOR YOURSELF…!  Try it for sure…! It’s simple…!  You, too, can do it…!  Your teacher was also a student. But he cultivated this art, with practice, practice and practice only…!  You know it. Practice makes a man perfect…!
6. 6. HOW TO ACQUIRE THIS SKILL?  I told you already. It’s a matter of observations & practice!  So! Are you ready to learn it…?  Good…!  That’s Great…!  I knew, you are a smart student…! www.vidyasagar.academy
7. 7. LET’S START…  First know the basic things…  There are 3 styles of drawing a figure or a circuit on a paper or even in the answer sheet.  The left aligned figure.  The right aligned figure.  And the centered figure.  While drawing figures in Physics, Chemistry or Electronics Exams, it is better to draw centered figures.
8. 8. LEFT/RIGHT ALIGNED FIGURE  These are left & right aligned figures, with some text surrounding it. They are generally small figures and have not long description. Such figures are better to align either left or right.  These figures have one drawback. While reading the text, sometimes they may be overlooked!
9. 9. CENTER ALIGN FIGURE  Following circuit is center aligned. Because its horizontal expanse is more than vertical height…  This circuit has long description. It’s working is also related to wave diagrams and truth table, etc.  So such figures must be center aligned.
10. 10. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  Symbols of battery & capacitor are different.  Indicate input/output terminals of a block or circuit with hollow circles. +
11. 11. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  Wires connecting each other are marked with a thick dot.  And the wires crossing but not connecting have no dot.
12. 12. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  Every component, block, device, label, etc. must be proportional with respect to each other.  Symmetrical circuits look beautiful & create good impression on the mind of a teacher…!
13. 13. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  Don’t draw any symbol in two different ways i.e. always use same symbol for same device.
14. 14. NOTE THIS…  A detailed labeled figure can directly “talk” with the reader…!
15. 15. NOTE THIS…  This is a stand alone figure. The figure itself explains the process and mechanism of CRO display. But such figures are of course difficult to draw. However, you must try.
16. 16. NOTE THIS…  Don’t be afraid to leave blank areas on the page but don’t try to fill up the page, either.
17. 17. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  All wires must be aligned either vertically or horizontally, unless there is a good reason to do otherwise.
18. 18. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  All parts must have a label and distinct & informative caption to the circuit...
19. 19. CONVENTIONAL RULES  The direction of current in the circuit must be correctly shown. KCL must be understood clearly.
20. 20. CONVENTIONAL RULES…  Instead of joining number of lines together, you can break the connections and simplify the look of the circuit.
21. 21. NOTE THIS…  While drawing a wave and its details, its shape must be precious.  Its relevant quadrant and projections on the axis must be clearly shown.
22. 22. NOTE THIS…  Every symbol must represent the exact identity of the relevant device…
23. 23. NOTE THIS…  When a circuit has two different sets of working, it’s a good idea to draw two independent circuits with relevant details...
24. 24. NOTE THIS…  If you want to draw the schematic of a device, be careful about its real shape & appearance to project its 3D view…
25. 25. NOTE THIS…  But if you want to draw just 2D schematic, you can ignore the inner details...
26. 26. NOTE THIS…  Proportion is a vital element in figures, when it comes to waves in particular...!
27. 27. NOTE THIS…  Size, shape, symmetry and proportion are very important factors, while drawing logic circuits...
28. 28. NOTE THIS…  Specific arrangement, order of repetitive connections, distinct internal spacing and relevant proportions makes the circuit beautiful as well as easy to understand…!
29. 29. NOTE THIS…  But sometimes, in special cases, you have to ignore proportions to manifest the meaning of figure…
30. 30. NOTE THIS…  Shading the important sections of a figure, creates good impression and also become noticeable…
31. 31. NOTE THIS…  Showing directions with arrows is also an important element through which the student can convince the teacher, that his concepts are clear…
32. 32. NOTE THIS…  Sometimes, to manifest a crystal clear concept in the form of an idea, a box creates beautiful impact on the mind of a reader...!
33. 33. NOTE THIS…  No matter that the neat and clear figures or circuits or diagrams , create good impression...  But sometimes the numerical arrangement also creates very good impression on teacher...
34. 34. WELL, WELL, WELL…!  My dear students, these are just the tips with which you can improve your figures and circuits and diagrams while writing in the ANSWER SHEET in the examination.  Remember, you may be already well prepared in your subject, but... The presentation makes all the difference…!
35. 35. MINIMUM NEEDS…  A ruled paper of average size.  A soft support to hold below the paper.  A pen or pencil  A small 6” scale, if you’re not sure, you can draw a straight line…!
36. 36. This slide show is written for the students who draw electrical & electronic circuits. But hope that, it may be equally helpful for other students, too…! www.vidyasagar.academy
