Book description
This book is designed for a one to threeterm course in electric circuits or linear circuit analysis and is structured for maximum flexibility. The central theme of Introduction to Electric Circuits is the concept that electric circuits are part of the basic fabric of modern technology. The presentation is geared to readers who are being exposed to the basic concepts of electric circuits for the first time, and the scope of the work is broad. Students should come to the course with the basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus. This book endeavors to prepare the reader to solve realistic problems involving electric circuits. Thus, circuits are shown to be the results of real inventions and the answers to real needs in industry, the office, and the home. The WileyPLUS learning environment provides robust resources for selfevaluation of student progress and assessment of learning outcomes.
Note: The ebook version does not provide access to the companion files.
