  • Electricity and Basic Electronics, 7th Edition
    Cover URL: Electricity and Basic Electronics 2009
    Keyword(s): electricity; electronics; 7th Edition; 2009; basic
    Abstract:

    Electricity and Basic Electronics teaches basic theory and fundamentals and is a starting point for careers in electronics. The text is clearly written and highly illustrated, making it easy for beginners to understand. Numerous examples walk students step-by-step through circuit analysis where applicable. The Practical Application and Project feature covers topics such as breadboarding, soldering, and reading voltage on an oscilloscope. There are 16 practical applications in all. The Project features, 28 in all, allow students to build items such as a continuity tester, blown fuse indicator, and power supply. Projects typically include a schematic, a picture of the finished product, and a procedure for assembling the project. A new Math Focus feature provides students with a quick review of the basic math skills they need to understand the topic at hand. Math topics covered are exponents, scientific notation, metric and electrical prefixes, order of operations, algebraic equations, adding fractions, ratios and proportions, and square roots. A new chapter called “Energy Conservation” covers ways to conserve energy and alternative forms of energy. Geothermal systems, photovoltaics, and wind turbines are just some of the topics covered.
