Well I am a beginner in electronics. So, I have some 4 pin tactile switches and I am confused about placing them in the breadboard. Here is the poorly drawn photo of the two ways of placing by me. Forgive me for such shitty kind of photo.
So,when I place the switch in the way (A)(follow the image) , the switch is so loose . I am adding another image.
So, In A type, When I connect one upper end to +ve of a battery , direct flow of current is seen on one lower end (IMAGE 2) but the other lower end doesn't flow current , only if I push the switch and hold it, the other end also flows current.
now, go to type B. here, I am placing the tact switch horizontally (B), and connect any of the 2 left side pins to the +ve of battery , the other left side pin also gets charged , because of the vertical hole lines (vertical with respect to the images) of breadboard. so , if I connect that, the right side two ends both gets charged . even if I push the switch, still the right end pins get charged. I've seen many comples circuit tutorials on youtube where they used a tact switch and placed it in type (B) , and they pushed the switch once but did not hold it, and the current started to flow. they pushed the switch again , and the circuit broke , How can I properly use a tact switch as a proper switch by placing it in type (B) and I want to use it a a proper on-off switch . Please help. If there are mistakes in my description , then you are welcome to re-edit it or comment. Please do help. I know that I dont know much of the electronics terms and I just started everything as beginner. Please help.
