The most widely used introductory circuits textbook of the past 25 years. As this book has evolved over the years to meet the changing learing styles of students, importantly, the underlying teaching approaches and philosophies remain unchanged. The goals are: To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning. To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem solving approaches. To provide students with a strong foundation of engineering practices. For Students or anyone interested in electric circuits.
Electric Circuits, Eighth Edition features a new design,a four-color format, and 80% of chapter problems have been updated. In the midst of these changes, the book retains the goals that have made it a best-seller: 1) To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning; 2) To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem solving approaches; 3) To provide readers with a strong foundation of engineering practices. Chapter topics include Circuit Variables; Circuit Elements; Simple Resistive Circuits; Techniques of Circuit Analysis; The Operational Amplifier; Inductors, Capacitors, and Mutual Inductance; Response of First-Order RL and RC Circuits; Natural and Step Responses of RLC Circuits; Sinusoidal Steady-State Analysis; and more. For anyone interested in circuit analysis.
