This course serves as the foundation for the theory that is required for the understanding of all electronic circuits. Previous knowledge of electronics is not required. The concepts of the basic quantities of voltage, current, resistance, energy and power are developed. The student will study the relationships between these quantities and apply this knowledge to the analysis of series, parallel and series-parallel DC and AC circuits. Introductions to resistors, capacitors, inductors, and transformers will prepare the student for future studies in electronics. Ohm's Law, frequency, resonance, impedance, and phase shift are additional concepts covered. The characteristics of various AC waveforms are discussed and measured. The concepts and calculations of reactive values are emphasized. The student will study the response to AC of various circuit configurations and apply this knowledge to the analysis of RC, RL, and RLC circuits. Various practical applications of circuit configurations are explored. At all times, theory is reinforced with hands-on practice.
Recommended MATH 11
