Electricity supports introductory or short courses that familiarize students with basic principles and applications for this form of energy. Using easy-to-understand language, this text provides information on sources of electricity, circuit types, electric motors, measuring instruments, generators, transformers, inductance, capacitance, solid-state devices, wireless devices, and solder/de-soldering. Nine projects are included to provide students with hands-on learning opportunities.
- A safety chapter enables students to practice safety in an electricity/electronics lab.
- A soldering and de-soldering primer helps students with their hands-on work with circuit boards.
- Assessment material at the end of chapters helps students apply what they’ve learned and use critical thinking skills to extend learning.
