Analyze the ways in which your life would change if you transistors and microchips were not a part of our everyday lives.

If transformers were not there, electricity transformation (step-up or step-down) would have become impossible. Hence, for each type of voltage requirement, we would have been required separate generators.

Generating an electric signal, corresponding to other synchronized signal would have not been possible -- means, impossible to have wireless telecommunication.

If micro-chips were not there, each and every appliance would have relied on heating effect, means a lot of space and energy consumption and a very slow process.

In other words, if you take out transformers (magnetic effect of electricity), an microchips, first of electric energy transfer would have ...
