In a nutshell, a potassium electron is an electron with a spin of one half a revolution per second.
It can be found in a variety of electronic devices, from chips to capacitors.
It is the electron responsible for the conductivity of semiconductors and the strength of electrical circuits.
A good potassium electron has the ability to transfer electrical charge to electronic devices.
In the next article, we will look at a range of potassium-electron-based electronics.
