I know it is a basic question but still I am confused , I wanted to use the female-male jumper wires on my basic electronic project ,So my question is how Can I identify which is female-male or male-female jumper wires?

  • \$\begingroup\$ normally they are used to interconnect the components of a breadboard or other prototype or test circuit, internally or with other equipment or components, without soldering \$\endgroup\$ – AJAY Oct 24 '16 at 8:11

    \$\begingroup\$ You do get that 'male-female' can become 'female-male' by rotating 180 degrees? \$\endgroup\$ – Pete Kirkham Oct 24 '16 at 8:40

    \$\begingroup\$ Females have a hole, males have a bit that sticks out. It's that simple. \$\endgroup\$ – Majenko Oct 24 '16 at 8:54

    \$\begingroup\$ @AJAY If you just wanted to know that, why do you ask for the differences between "female-male" and "male-female"? You realize there is no difference between both, then? \$\endgroup\$ – dim Oct 24 '16 at 8:30
  • \$\begingroup\$ @dim I wanted to use female jumper wires for my project , and I didn't know the difference that's why I am asking such question. \$\endgroup\$ – AJAY Oct 24 '16 at 8:37
