Principles of Electric Circuits Conventional Current, 10th Global Edition
In the years that have passed since the last edition of this classic text, there have been many changes in technology. Fundamental circuit laws and components remain the focus of the text but with updated instruments and methods including new computer simulations with both Multisim and LTSpice. One important change to this edition is illustrated steps for solving problems with simultaneous equations and complex mathematics using a graphing calculator. Graphing calculators have increased capabilities and are much more affordable, so are an important tool in basic electronics. The numerous pedagogical features that have been hallmarks of this book have been retained and expanded. This includes practical application of basic concepts, basic troubleshooting, and use of instruments. The entire text has been reviewed with an eye for improving and updating it.
Every example has been reworked and checked. In that process, the full resolution of a calculator was kept until the end before final roundoff to three digits. This has improved round-off errors from previous editions. The entire text was also reviewed for improving readability and clarity, with many modifications. Our effort has been to continue the tradition of having the best introduction to basic electronics on the market.
