Hey electronics guys,

I was reading my “Basic Electronics” book tryna get smart enough to build my homemade temp. sensor.

Ran across a paragraph that says adding a capacitor to an AC circuit will make the light glow brighter.

Does that mean that just sticking a cap in line with the headlight on a stock moped would make the light brighter?

Are mopeds even AC? Or pulsed DC?

I feel like I should know this by now but I don’t.
