Page 76, there are four equations, one at the bottom of the first column, and three in the second column. Please replace these equations with these substitutes: V = I * R W = V * I W = I^2 * R W = V^2 / R The second equation is actually unchanged but I am including all four so there is less chance of misunderstanding. The terms I^2 and V^2 use 2 as a superscript.

Column 1, paragraph 2

The text states that the common symbol for an inductor is shown in Fig 14-1 at the bottom. And yet throughout the chapter on inductors the author uses the symbol that the text indicates is obsolete. Seems strange to point out the newer 'best practice' and turn right around and use the older symbol.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you for catching this. We'll be adding a note indicating that while the bottom symbol is becoming more common, that the top symbol is not obsolete. Although one style may become more common, it is important to be familiar with both because the prevalence of one over the other varies over time, between geographic regions, and subdisciplines/specialties.

Column 1, bottom of the first full paragraph beginning "Another model is the "corkscrew rule"...

the phrase "as the" has been duplicated: ..."in the same as the direction as the resulting magnetic force"... should read ..."in the same direction as the resulting magnetic force."

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you for catching this. We'll be correcting this in a future printing.

Column 2, forumula for L at top of page

The formula indicated lacks two parentheses... reads L = approx (D2 * N2) / 18 * D) + (48 * W should read L = approx (D2 * N2) / (18 * D) + (48 * W)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you for catching this. We'll be correcting this in a future printing.

Figure 26-11

I have been told by a retired electrical engineer that the rectifier pictured is not a silicon rectifier but rather a selenium rectifier
