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.
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.
This companion work provides an introduction to Multisim and supports its use in a beginning linear circuits course based on the textbook, Electric Circuits, Eighth Edition by James W. Nilssson and Susan A. Riedel. The ease of use interface and design features of Multisim make interactive validation of circuit behavior uncomplicated and insightful. Topics appear in this supplement in the same order in which they are presented in the text. Step by step instructions, screen captures and 22 illustrative examples provide an easy path for mastering circuit simulation with Multisim. To assess understanding a list of recommended exercises from each chapter of the main text are provided at the conclusion of each chapter.
