Basic Electricity Second Edition A Self-Teaching Guide Ever Wonder… What makes a light bulb work? What overloads a fuse? Why your car needs a battery and an alternator? We all use electricity in our daily lives, yet most of us don’t know what it is or how it works. With Basic Electricity, Second Edition, you can teach yourself all about electricity—for everyday understanding or as a basis for further study. This easy-to-use guide takes you through the basics of electricity and familiarizes you with the workings of voltage, current, resistance, power, and other circuit values in direct-current and alternating-current electricity. The Second Edition has been extensively updated to include the latest in electrical technology. Through step-by-step problem-solving, you’ll gain a true understanding of the basic rules, laws, concepts and equations of electric circuits. Best of all, you’ll understand and appreciate the nature of electricity without ever having to determine its "invisible" identity. Self-tests at the end of each chapter have been fully revised…and a brand-new end-of-course exam is included so you can test your overall comprehension of basic electricity. For further study, the Second Edition’s cross-referenced list of standard texts on electricity has also been updated.
